could be incorrect overclocking, could be the card could just not be able to handle the overclock.....I have a gigabyte 730 as well, and it, like most low end video cards, was never designed to be able to overclock. The cooling is not there, and the components to cheap to be able to handle the added heat. On top of that, even if you do get it to overclock properly, even at max overclock it will not offer anywhere near the performance of even a mid range card of that series.
And if your computer is the one in a million with a VGA in, like captain chicken said, you could. But I highly doubt you do, and it wouldnt do you much good anyway. I would just not overclock it and save your pennies for a higher end card if its not fast enough to do what you need it to do, seeing as prolonged overclocking is likely to fry it anyway. just my .02 cents.
