I would like to install eOS 5.1.2. on my Dell Precision 5530 with the following specs:

Intel Core i9-8950HK
Nvidia Quadro P2000 w/4GB GDDDR5 (with 4k screen)
Intel Wifi Link 9260 2x2 802.11AC+BT 5.0 vPro Wireless Card

I'm coming from Kubuntu 18.04 LTS and had some minor graphic issues, which are the main reasons for the switch. Always needed to restart the system when connecting a screen, which I do quite often. Apart from this the system worked well. Do you might have any tips before I start the installation. How does eOS handle SWAP and might it be the best to have SWAP partition and not SWAP file (had this on Kubuntu). Which driver to use for my NVidia card? Should I let the system install all drivers during installation our should I better do it myself afterwards?

I already tried to install it but have several issues, e.g. suspend does not work, battery time is horrible, Logitech MX Master 2s thumb button using (ALT+CTRL+TAB) is not working as shortcut and the graphics cards can't see the driver.

I would really appreciate some help and experience.
