My legacy Nvidia card was not high-end, but it still works for me with 
Nouveau/Mesa for normal work without heavy graphical tasks.
Previously I also used Nvidia's proprietary driver, which was (and still 
is) quite easy to install via their specific openSUSE repositories.

But as I continuously upgrade my lp15.x and especially the Tumbleweed 
rolling release in a dual-boot setup, it became extra work and more 
error prone to keep up with Nvidia. Therefore I went with Nouveau as 
part of the official openSUSE lp15.x stablel and tw rolling releases:

# inxi -SCMG

Packages I have installed in additional for Nvidia are

S  | Name                      | 
Summary                                                     | Type
i  | kernel-firmware-nvidia    | Kernel firmware files for Nvidia Tegra 
and graphics drivers | package
i+ | nvidia-firmware-installer | Downloads and installs nVidia 
firmware                      | package

I have so far not tried NVIDIA Open GPU kernel modules, which according 
to this openSUSe blog seemingly work for Nvidias newer Turing/Ampere GPU 
platforms with Risc-V system processor.
