SolidWorks Issues With Dell Workstations?

My office is giving the engineers new Dell Precision 5820 workstations. However, the first one has had multiple SolidWorks crashes for several weeks now with relatively uncomplicated files that weren't an issue on the old workstations. The other one has three displays, but one is an ultrawide and we can't get it to work in 21:9 - only 16:9. The latest one just came in and isn't in service just yet. Has anyone else had issues with SolidWorks products on Dell workstations before? If so, I want to be ahead of the curve and solve this issue now since each of these machines cost over $2000.
