I realize you can use software to overclock a video card, but can you just increase voltage and speeds in the BIOS?

Not with a dedicated GPU, if you had for example a sandy bridge CPU that has a built in GPU then you could overclock that via the BIOS.
MSI afterburner is a good program for overclocking/overvolting your GPU.

In addition to the tools OMG mentioned some cards (x1800GTO, 6950) do have modified bios's you can flash your card to inorder to unlock features. Try a websearch with the name of your card and hack to see what might be out there.
