W510 and Docking Station - 2 Monitors

Sorry I'm new to this forum and fairly tech unsavvy. I'm thinking of buying the W510 and docking station. I'd like to be able to hook up 2 Dell 24" Ultrasharp U2410 monitors.

Would I be able to do this? The connection specifications say 2 DVI ports on the docking station. So I'm thinking the answer is yes but wanted to confirm.
