you would have same issue on mainstream linux apparently man.  Nouveau is about 
the kernel version you are using.  Apparently even 4.9 might still not work 
correctly for you even on a baremetal fedora system with that card, as seen by 
the amount of people complaining on fedora forum threads.  Most people buy 
cards like that for gpu intensive processing like graphics design and gaming 
and use the nvidia proprietary drivers.  There seems to be no choice,  I guess 
if you want to use open source drivers,  your nvidia card has to be at least 
over two years old to ensure compatibility.
