Do what makes you happy. Do you have a GPU? If you don't P-1 might be the best use of your hardware in this range.

As long as you have a somewhat-reasonable amount of available RAM (at least 4GB, preferably 8GB) to dedicate to the project.

I should have enough but I do have a relatively powerful GPU. I think I’ll go with P-1 for now.

For optimal throughput, you should use your GPU for Trial Factoring. Use your CPU(s) for P-1'ing (or LL'ing).

Which program should I use for TF’ing? Should I go with GPU72 or something else?

Depending on what type of GPU you have, either mfaktc (Nvidia) or mfakto (AMD). See the GPU Computing section for more details.

GPU72 doesn't currently offer assignments in the 332M range, but you can get these directly from Primenet.

I’ll go for mfaktc then. Can it read the worktodo file or will I have to manually submit my results?

It can read the worktodo.txt file, but it doesn't fetch nor return work automatically.

If you run Windows I'd recommend you use a tool called MISFIT. If you run Linux you can use mfloop.

Thanks for the help! I'll be going with some factors in a few days once this double-check finishes. Rn I'm doing M48377519 and it should be done in 9 hours.

Ok, just set mfaktc up. There's no GUI, so how do I know if it's running or not?

Just to be clear, you should have separate worktodo files for Prime95 and mfaktc, otherwise they'll fight. Best to have them installed in separate folders (I use c:\prime95 and c:\prime95\mfaktc but whatever works for you).
