Default What can I do with my nvidia GPU?

Hi,

I'm running prime95 in hopes of finding a large prime number, here are my specs:

Intel SP9400 (2.4ghz, 6mb l2 cache, overclocked to 3.06ghz, mobile CPU).
Nvidia quadro FX 3700m (mobile GPU).
2gb ram (going to upgrade to 4gb in a week).

Is there anything that is like prime95 but for my GPU?
Something that will help me find a 100 million digit prime number faster?

Thanks, but I'm a noob with this stuff, I don't understand exactly what I should download and run.

I need something simple like prime95, will that ever have support for CUDA?

Many many people have wanted Prime95 to support graphics cards, and I don't know George Woltman's plans, but I personally doubt we'll get graphics card support in any but the longer-term future.

Right now you won't be able to do anything to contribute to GIMPS with your GPU unless you're willing to do software-developer-type stuff and manually reserve your numbers to test.

I'm assuming you didn't get that GPU for the purpose of finding primes.
So let's remember that with your setup you can still contribute and potentially find a 10^11digit prime while using your hardware for gaming or fiddling with graphics or whatever it is that you got it for.
