Downloading Nvidia Drivers

So I have not long ago installed Manjaro XFCE 18.1.5
I am having trouble installing the drivers and keeping up to date with all the new ones.

Can I please have some assistance with correctly installing the nvidia drivers?

Many thanks - Cayden

Could you please describe the problem you are having in a bit more detail?
And please post the output of inxi -Fxxxz in a blockquote.

Sorry but I don't know what I am doing and that's my bad.
I don't have any issues but I am extremely confused on which package to install.
Also don't know in terms of the Hardware configuration.
(very sorry)
Thanks - xrmxr

Just open Terminal and enter the command @Takie gave you and then post the out of that command here like so.

So you are saying you do not know which driver version you ought to pick?

You could go with the latest NVidia drivers. Your GC is supported by it. That would be the 440.59 package.
