The following list shows the available inputs on the Dell U2713HM monitor and the maximum resolution for each:
- DisplayPort: 2560 x 1440 DPI at 60Hz
- Dual-link DVI: 2560 x 1440 DPI at 60Hz
- VGA: 2048 x 1152 DPI at 60Hz

You are right. But !
I use passive cable from HDMI-out on mainboard to DVI-in on monitor. Because of that system tell us about HDMI interface.
This configuration is 100% work, I can set 2560 x 1440 @ 60Hz in this system in this monitor, but after Windows10 was updated (with updating HD Graphics Driver) this ability disappeared.

Thank you for contacting the Intel Communities. I understand you would like to get 2560x1440 with your system, we can check on that for sure.
If the video port used is HDMI, as per the information provided by the other user, the resolution doable is 1920x1080.
If the system was working differently before the update, please check with Dell support team to find out why this happened since their monitor is working differently.
