I experienced similar problems.  I wasn't able to
start X without xf86-video-nouveau, but had core
dumps with it.  Now I'm trying an install on another
machine with an Intel video card.  So far so good,
but it hasn't been long enough to tell.

I'm new to Arch and have been using another distro
for years.  Arch has over 60 fewer processes running
and less than half as many files in /etc than my
old distro had.  These things are helpful for me
from a sys admin perspective.  Thanks for the work
done on Arch so far.
