What model is your CPU and how many cores has it got? Just saying it's i9 isn't enough (there are several models of i9).
What polynomial did you find for the 100 digit test number? That will tell us how well you have things working. To use CUDA you will need a Nvidia GPU and a fair amount of time to get it working. A one off job will probably take longer to get CUDA working than it will save factoring the number. Or you could post the number to the "Polynomial Request Thread" in the Msieve forum and ask someone else to find a polynomial for you.

Another question arises: how does RAM affect search? And does it affect at all?

Factorization speed does not depend on RAM, but for large numbers the postprocessing phase is RAMintensive and this puts an upper limit on the size of numbers that can be run on a given machine. 16GB is enough to handle up to ~190 digits, and 32GB gets you over 200 digits. But such large numbers would take a long time to sieve anyway; I'd guess ~6 months for 190digit GNFS on your i99900k using CADO, slightly longer with GGNFS/msieve.

I have 128 GB of RAM
And I need to look for a 154digit number.

You'll never have any RAM issues with 128GB.

As mentioned earlier you can roughly go by the rule that sieiving times double per 5 additional digits.
I have a i1010900k that takes about 34 days for a 155 digit number. Should be similar in your case. Actually if you only want to factor this one number and that's it, I would just go for it. If there's trouble you loose a few days, nothing too dramatic. Maybe you'll find yourself get hooked by factorization though... Last fiddled with by bur on 20220125 at 19:18

Ok, now you know how it's done, come and factor few numbers here, for example, aliquot sequences, or other stuff...

@Lessiv: Could you please post the number (if you factored it)?
