Graphics Driver for my MSI Laptop [NVIDIA/INTEL]

Hey,

sorry, Im new to linux and need help. Some days ago I bought a new MSI Laptop (MSI GP60 Leopard Pro Gaming Laptop with i7), which has a Intel Graphics Chip & NVIDIA dedicated Graphics Card, for which I want to install dedicated Drivers. There is no option in the BIOS to select which GPU I want to use.

running the following command:

lspci -nnk | grep "VGA\|'Kern'\|3D\|Display" -A2

gives me the following output:

    00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation 4th Gen Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:0416] (rev 06)
    Subsystem: Micro-Star International Co., Ltd. [MSI] Device [1462:1113]
    Kernel driver in use: i915
--
01:00.0 3D controller [0302]: NVIDIA Corporation GM108M [GeForce 840M] [10de:1341] (rev a2)
    Subsystem: Micro-Star International Co., Ltd. [MSI] Device [1462:1113]
    Kernel modules: nouveau

Can some one help me please?
