Good time of the day!

Installed Sierra, everything seems to work normal, except the graphics.

My platform:
Philips 23" monitor
GA-h97-d3h
i7 4770
8 GB RAM
1 TB HDD (7200)
GeForce GT 730

installed, sierra + clover 3773,
installed Nvidia Web drivers for 10.12 (v. 367.15.10.05f01)
added <key>NvidiaWeb</key><true/>

after booting i get the errors seen in screenshots attached. (the video card is recognized as it should be)

Please, someone point me to a direction, to solve this issue

This might be a long shot, but try this....

In your BIOS, set the first graphics device to IGFX. Your system should still boot using your GTX 730.
However, you will not be able to see the clover boot screen as there is nothing connected to the IGFX output.
A way around this is to disable the onboard IGFX completely and then you can see the clover boot screen.
However, be aware if you do this, you may end up in a situation where if you cannot boot from your discrete graphics card, you will not be able to use your internal IGFX without doing a reset of your BIOS (CMOS clear etc).

I had Xcode graphics corruption and this fixed it. See my post here...

Thanx for the response, zap737.

I've already tried what you wrote, the result is the same.
tried playing around w/ injecting different device ID's like 0x0DE1 instead of what i have by default as 0x0f02, etc.
the result is the same.
by the way, 0x0DE1 is the ID for GT 430 ( i've dissasembled the videocard. the chip reads GF108-300-A1, which, as i came across, after doing some digging, corresponds to GT430 graphics card (for what i have, 730 is just the naming)).

So the problem still persists.

in this bios for the IGFX i do not have the option to set it auto. i got enable/disable. have tried to disable the web drivers, in that case i get the card to be recognized as "Nvidia chip model 5 mb", with no QE/CI (and yes, did repair permissions).
did another install with the same video card (gt 730), on a ASUS Z97 board, i7 4790 processor. have absolutely the same exact problem.
so i am guessing the web driver is not 100% suitable for that exact chip family (GA-108), meaning it enables full ram access, full acceleration, QE/CI but leaves the above mentioned problems.

still trying . . .

if i try any clover below 3751, i am not able to enable nvidia web drivers in config.plist. if there's a way to enable them in old versions of clover, a guide would be appreciated.
