First of all, I would recommend that you take a look at this thread in the Hardware forum which contains a whole lot of discussion regarding running prime search apps on GPU's.

As for how any of that would apply to NPLB: As detailed in the above-linked thread, there are currently no prime-searching apps capable of running on GPU's. It is possible that at some point in the future some trial factoring/sieving applications may be ported to GPU's, though there are no ongoing projects of that sort that I know of.
