How to use the nVidia internal compositor with XFCE?

Hello all,

following a recommendation from the net (NVIDIA/Troubleshooting - ArchWiki), I enabled the Composition Pipeline on my nVidia GPU:

Option "MetaModes" "nvidia-auto-select +0+0 {ForceFullCompositionPipeline=On}"

Looks like I will have to use a dedicated compositor anyway in order to get compositing effects, like transparency.
Which one is the best compositor to work together with ForceFullCompositionPipeline=On? Should I use XFCE’s built-in compositor or an external one, like picom?
