I have a Dell Optiplex 760 computer, its BIOS is too bad. The options are few, even some parts I click on and it's blank, can't be change anything. Is there a hidden setting I can unlock with it, or a way to mod the dell bios to overclock? Is Bios modification is the same as normal software modification. Can you let me know bios mod process details?

I did repair for Dell Computers. Never heard of anything that would allow you to overclock the system let alone modify the BIOS . I wouldn't recommend anyone to because the most of the components are extremely proprietary and any changes would mostly fry the system.

i won't brick the board because i can reload the nand bios data. just need someone to mod bios software, i see on this part no one is do much, please share if you know. an overclocker is someone who doesn't like the ordinary and I ran into Dell so I tried to destroy it. totally overclockable if have good bios everything onboard, IC... is perfect except bad bios.

I don't think even a modified bios would let you overclock, the chipset just doesn't have that feature. You could do a bsel tape mod OC if you have a 800/1066 fsb CPU, but that's pretty much it.
 
The overclock for those is the BSEL tape mod from 266 to 333 fsb on the E7500 2 core CPU. This gets about 3.67Ghz
This was used on the Q6600 to 3GHz back in the day, but the Q9650 runs about 10% better so isn't used for that any more.

You might get lucky with an E7600 but usually there isn't enough CPU Volatge for the 3.83GHz overclock.
If you have the Mini Tower case the Zotac GTX1050 Mini drops right in. It's just about the only GPU that fits.
You could use the Zotac GTX1050TI Mini 4GB also. But the 8GB DDR2 system will choke occasionally on a few benchmarks.
A D9729 cooler, or T9303 will easily cool that setup. Get whichever one matches the holes in you plastic cover.
