    How many proxies do I need w/ GSA? I plan on using it for about a dozen sites. I'm not exactly sure how many threads I'll be using yet, but probably at least 250. I have an old i7 laptop @ 2.3 GHz that I was just going to let GSA run 24/7 on.

    If anyone could suggest some inexpensive proxy services that work well with GSA it would be appreciated as well.

    I use 10 proxies with 250 threads. I do get a bit of a bottleneck from using that many and could do with a whole heap more. I think you're better off going for quality over quantity but.

    That's true I've been reading that's pretty standard. I will be running it pretty much all the time so I guess there's no rush and 250 would be fine. Do you think 10 semi-dedicated proxies would be fine with 250 threads or should I go w/ dedicated?

    I use private proxies and I would suggest that you do too. I've never used semi-dedicated, but I think the other users would be using them for the same purpose and your LMP would suffer because of it. The proxies I use are really fast I get a pretty good LPM, even with just 10 of them.

    10 proxies are more than enough for dozen sites. Keep the thread count to 100, (250 threads may lower your outputs and the proxies may lead to dead or listed in spam db).

    I use GSA for more than 2 years in my remote desktop which has 16 GB RAM with 100 Mbps net speed. Why don't you try a similar kind.
