It's your call. What you propose to do does not look wrong. An advantage of participating in betas is an opportunity to find & report issues and influence implementation.

thank you, Kriesel, for those wonderful notes — they're super-helpful! :D)
You're welcome. It began as a compilation of what I needed or wanted to know as a new-to-GPU-GIMPS-computing participant, and did not find easy to find in the forum, and grew and grew. It seemed silly and stingy not to share. Note also the acknowledgment of contributions of many others (near the end of the large outline page, with a pointer near the beginning). Some new users ask excellent well thought out and clearly phrased questions that identify gaps in the reference info coverage.

Speaking of well-informed advice for a newbie: My little computer is an AMD 5600G, Radeon Vega 7, with 64 GB DDR4 memory. What tasks should she be doing?
Running prime95 is the usual start point. There is enough system ram to do productive P-1 factoring both stage 1 and stage 2 on wavefront exponents or higher, if prime95 is properly adjusted from as-installed default settings. (Options, resource limits) If the system has only an IGP, not a discrete GPU with its own memory, it may or may not be productive to use mfakto or gpuowl on the IGP. There's a reference thread for that. Experimenting with GPU apps on the IGP is a zero cost way to dabble in GPU computing before deciding whether to add a discrete GPU. If you find the time to experiment with GPU apps on the Vega 7 IGP, please post your test results. Some of the IGP thread is links to the results of others who have done that.
