Specs:
Cpu: intel i3 3240 3.4 ghz
Gpu: galax gt 730 gddr5
monitor:dell E1920h
Ram: 4gb ddr3
Hdd: toshiba 500gb
Psu: dell 275w
VGA PORT PC TO MONITOR

Before i was using inno3d gt 220, there's no lines on the screen. I bought an galax gt 730 ddr5 and install it correctly, the lines appears on some shades on the screens.
The lines pattern was like a lightningor is black and it is transparent and vanishing on completely white and completely black, ive clean my gpu and reinstall the driver, i also try to change the vga port with another vga port but it seems to be the same, ive tried another monitor too, but the problem was still there. I want to know the problem so i could buy another pc parts for it. I also download furmark for benchmarking, and ive maxed the fans on the msi afterburner, the benchmark was completely finished without any problem, the benchmark that i was run was about 15 munites.

My diagnosetic was its caused by the psu cause it says on the requirements it needs 300w psu. is that the problem or its the gpu it self.

HERE'S A VIDEO OF THE PROBLEM: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1fFpVqV-yni5l_9fYlvwScZyfThHjAx67/view?usp=sharing

that card consumes 49W gt 730, the gt 220 59W consumes more than that I do not think the issue is the PSU.

you can run a hardware test by booting into linux
Boot to a USB drive with linux on it. grab a USB drive, a copy of rufus and a linux distribution.
http://distrowatch.com/ has tons of differing linux distributions and download links. I personally am fond of linux mint with cinnamon.
https://rufus.ie/ the utility used to extract the ISO file to the USB drive.

use rufus to extract the selected ISO to the thumb drive. it will make the drive bootable and you can run linux from the drive once done.
Reboot into linux and proceed to test the hardware. connect to internet, watch videos, await problems.
if linux is good and stable the issue is most likely inside windows or otherwise software related.
this is a test of the hardware.

if the issue is the same here it may be the card/cable.

ANOTHER INFORMATION TO THE PROBLEM: before i install the driver, the issue was still there.
that lends to the card itself being at issue.
linux can be booted off of a USB and will not effect windows at all, unless you really try to damage windows booting to linux on USB will let you test the hardware, independent of windows and any issues therein. if the driver was the issue it would work perfectly in linux. if the card is at fault the same behavior will follow to the new (temporary) OS.

without the driver windows is defaulting to the generic default VGA driver that should work with all cards.

if its the card what would be the solution? it could be the cause of the vga port into it? should i buy a dvi to vga converter? ft its a system error what should i do?
