Archinstall script with nvidia-470 driver?

I used to use the 'archinstall' script on the installation media for quick installs on a test machine to experiment with various Desktop Environment. You just answer a few questions and go get coffee. However, when the nvidia driver went to version 495, those installs started failing because my GT 710 card is not supported past 470 which is a AUR package.

Is there a way to still use the 'archinstall' script and get the nvidia-470xx-dkms driver installed instead of the default 495?

Re: Archinstall script with nvidia-470 driver?

I have figured out at least one way to accomplish this,  Using 'archinstall' I select my choices including Desktop and KDE but I choose Open Source drivers. Also it's key that you choose the additional packages of linux-headers, base-devel, and git. Once the install completes, it boots into KDE/Plasma fine.  Then I install yay and then use yay to install nvidia-470xx-dkms, nvidia-470xx-utils, and nvidia-470xx-settings.
