Before downloading and installing new driver, make sure that your system has a supported NVIDIA GPU.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install nvidia-346

After installation, restart your computer to activate the installed driver.
After a new logon check the installed graphics driver utility NVIDIA X Server Settings, search in the menu or in the terminal command:

glxinfo | grep OpenGL

Good Luck!!!
