Can Thinkcentre M700 tiny support 2560x1080

Hi I just got a LG monitor (25UM57) that is 2560x1080. When I started the monitor it warned me that the resolution needs to be changed to 2560x1080 60HZ. I went to my screen resolution settings and it was maxed out 1920x1080. I'm looking to change it to the recommend 2560x1080 because at the current settings I can tell its stretched and blurry. Can anyone help me please? Thanks in advance.

btw, the LG monitor is with a HDMI cable but the M700 only offers Displayports. So I purchased a DP to HDMI convertor. Would this impact the resolution?

Is the DP to HDMI converter capable of that resolution?  Some only good to 1920×1200p/60 Hz (HDMI version 1.2 and earlier), you need ver. 1.3 or later.
