The latest nvidia up in testing (310-19) has dropped support for cards 7xxx and below. To keep supplying a non-free driver for those cards, the last used nvidia that supported those is now packaged as nvidia-304xx.Anyone on those kind of older cards, please test this version (you'll see a pretty clear warning in the nvidia update):sudo pacman -Syu
sudo pacman -S nvidia-304xxThis should

I had misread the wiki that I should use nvidia-304xx with GTX 770 instead of nvidia package.I installed nvidia, nvidia-utils and lib32-nvidia-utils.
I have a Dell 3008WFP 30 inch monitor with native resolution of 2560*1600, Fedora 19 installed and a Nvidia

I have this driver installed

On my desktop PC I'm running F19 with the rpmfusion nvidia driver. The PC is booted daily. Sometimes the boot goes smoothly, but more often than not it hangs before the GUI comes up. If I reboot into "multi-user target" (formerly known as runlevel 3) and then issue "startx", the GUI always comes up. This has been going on for several weeks.

Pretty new to arch linux and having to find/install the correct driver for my graphics card. When I was setting everything up I installed an nvidia package (pacman -S nvidia), which I'm not sure if that's a very general driver or what. But I do see that I need https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/nvidia-173xx/ for my 560ti.
