Dell E6500 and NEC PA271w Video Adapters and Screen Resolution?

Okay, I'm a little confused about my Dell E6500 video capabilities. I would never have guessed it could run the NEC PA271w at 2560x1440 (recommended) via Displayport. I'm impressed because electronic shops I visited told me the video card would never support more than 1920x1200. Also noticed the NEC 'MultiProfiler' software detected two NVIDIA Quadro NVS 160M adatpers upon first installation. I thought it only had one built-in video card. I should mention that I'm using the Dell dock for E6500. Maybe it has some sort of extended video capabilities. Don't know, just curious.

Your laptop supports a max resolution of 2560x1600 using the displayport. With the e-port plus you can run 2 external monitors @ upto 2560x1600 using displayport.

For the E-Port it in the description on the Dell website, but for the displayport on the system its just something  knew from setting them up with 30" monitors, can't find anywhere in the specs where it actually shows a maximum resolution and the max res of displayport is usually 2560x1600 .
