I switched from my on-board ATI to an PCIe NVIDI card.
At the moment I struggle with issues regarding to real-time audio and
MIDI. In the past I used nv and nvidia with other distros and older
kernels and I had no issues. Nouveau didn't work in the past.

At the moment real-time using nv, and nouveau doesn't work as needed and
nvidia-rt doesn't work.

I'm undecided what I'll try the next. Perhaps I'll remove the NVIDIA
card and test if the ATI is the better choice at the moment.

I also will compare Arch with other installs on my machine.

At the moment NVIDIA for my Arch Linux is a PITA. First I had issues to
switch back from nouveau to nv. Hopefully switching to ATI and as the
case may be, switching back will be easier.
