Random GUI lockups with nouveau and chromium

Hi
I recently installed a new GeForce 710 video card in a desktop computer running XFCE4 and the xorg nouveau driver. Since then I've been having intermittent GUI freezes while browsing with Chromium. Everything locks up and I have to ssh into the machine and restart the display manager (lightdm). Noveau seems to be throwing a bunch of errors in dmesg. Computer has an AMD Phenom 9950 Quad core CPU and 8GB RAM.

installed pkgs:
xf86-video-nouveau 1.0.15-3
chromium 68.0.3440.75-1
qt5-webengine 5.11.1-2
mesa 18.1.4-1
lib32-mesa 18.1.4-1
xfdesktop 4.12.4-2 (xfce4)
lightdm 1:1.26.0-1

Output of uname -a :

 Linux  4.17.8-1-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Wed Jul 18 09:56:24 UTC 2018 x86_64 GNU/Linux 

Output of cat /proc/cmdline

 BOOT_IMAGE=/boot/vmlinuz-linux root=UUID=9d9... rw quiet splash vmalloc=256M
