Query regarding CIF file

I have a very simple query that: when I download a final CIF file then I see four options there like computed, Conventional Standard, Primitive cell and Symmetrized.
Which one I should download?
I am searching compounds by formula. Example Mn3GaC. I aimed to compute electronic, optical, elastic, and thermo electrical properties of bulk compounds.

We have a description of the different CIF types here: https://github.com/materialsproject/mapidoc/tree/master/materials/cifs.

Generally, granular descriptions of all data available on our site / via our API are available at this repository: https://github.com/materialsproject/mapidoc.

Thank you for your interest in the Materials Project.
