I have Dell inspiron n5110 which has Intel(R) HD Graphics 3000 and Nvidia GeForce GT 525M. I'm wondering why msut I install the intel driver first to be able to install the nvidia driver and to make the nvidia GPU work properly? Thanks in advance!

System defaults to Intel driver for most things, the 525M only kicks in when system needs the extra power or if an app requests it.

Thanks for your answer, but if this is true then how do I have the choice to choose either the intel or the nvidia to process the graphics of a specific application. Doesn't this mean that they are independent from each other?
