SW 2015 Crashing and "running out of memory"'

Hi all,

I am experiencing an issue with SW 2015. Whenever I try to open a large assembly, SW either crashes, displays a dialogue stating that it is "Out of Memory", or pops up a notification from the systray that says available resources are low. When large assemblies do open, it takes about 8min to switch between solidworks windows. Additionally, I have noticed crashes when I am editing a sketch and overdefine it. I am very confused and I have not been able to solve the issue with extensive googling. I have checked the GDI Objects, and it only uses about 4500 when the crash occurs. RAM usage stays below 4GB.

I am running Win 8.1 with 24GB RAM, i7 5820K @ 3.30GHz, nVidia Quadro K2200.

Below is a screenshot of the crash:


Thanks for any help you can provide!
