[arch-general] Switch from AMD GPU to nvidia GPU

I was using amd r7 260x card without any problem with 'amdgpu' module.
Now I want to install my new nvidia card (1050ti). I assumed that
installing 'nvidia' package from pacman would be enough to be able to
use my new GPU. (Apparently not).
The nvidia related packages installed on my PC are:
~$ pacman -Qs nvidia
Nvidia VDPAU library
NVIDIA drivers for linux
NVIDIA drivers utilities
Upon rebooting after switching the cards, arch boots fine until "Reached
target graphical interface" appears on the display. It seemed the PC was
stuck, but switching to tty2 resulted in flashing keyboard lights.
Which, according to a quick Google search, means kernel panic.
Moreover,  says that "the files are read in ASCII order, and by
convention their names start with XX- (two digits and a hyphen, so that
for example 10 is read before 20).". But I have multiple files in
"/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d" starting with the same number 10:
~$ ls /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/
Please help me in getting my new card up and running.
