I have Radeon 5730M graphic card and I'm using catalyst drivers. I have catalyst-utils, lib32-catalyst-utils, catalyst-dkms installed and working properly. How to enable graphics switching between ati and intel? I can't even install xf86-video-intel drivers because of mesa-libgl conflict with catalyst-utils. Could someone help me with setting up graphic switching and issue described above?

catalyst and libgl conflict, so you would need to do something like this (not sure my package names are exact here):
pacman -Rdd catalyst lib32-catalyst-utils pacman -S xf86-video-intel lib32-libgl
Then reverse the process for switching to intel. So far as I can tell, there is no way to switch without doing package removal and skipping dependency checks. Probably best to make a script that you run like so:
./switchgraphics intel ./switchgraphcis ati
The other problem that you are going to have is that you will probably need to reboot between switches, and probably also run mkinitcpio, as the fglrx module needs to be rebuilt when installing catalyst.
It's not worth the trouble then. Thank You very much!
