Why is TF always the default option for anything that can't run 50M tests in a reasonable amount of time? What's wrong with double-checks or P-1 factoring? That machine is more than twice the minimum threshold to do double checks, and 36 times the minimum threshold to not be banished to LMH/ODB assignments. If it's a dedicated machine with a decent amount of memory it would be an ideal candidate for P-1 (might even be able to get a free memory upgrade to make it P-1 ready from people scrapping their older machines). We probably have 10 times as many people doing TF as we need, and suggesting that anybody without a C2D/C2Q/i7 do trial factoring isn't exactly helping.
