There is no such thing as a gtk-730 so I will assume you mean a gt730 (no
"k").

What version of the nvidia-driver pkg is required for this card?

Likely 390 (440 has dropped support for some cards in the 500-700 model
range I am not sure what 304 supports but I am sure 390 does support since
my 710 works fine with it).

*DO NOT* mix drm and nvidia-driver... no drm version supports nvidia
directly with all capabilities.. so do not install any of them.
