Set Nvidia over Intel Graphics?

My computer (lenovo y580) has an integrated intel chip, and an nvidia gtx 660m. I have both drivers installed on my system, yet whatever I open it uses the Intel chip to run it, when I really only want the nvidia running it. I am getting really frustrated now, is there a program for my system where you can switch between the devices?

Have you read the wiki page? Particularly the part about the hack?

Re: Set Nvidia over Intel Graphics?

Okay. I think this is what I need. How do I go about this though? Am I supposed to remove my intel or nvidia drivers before applying the hack? Do I do the hack and then the bumblebee support? Even if I get the hack and it works, would it still choose the intel over the nvidia?

The wiki page is pretty self-explanatory. This is Arch, work your way through it.
