1000KB =1 Mb
1000MB= 1 Gb
GB stands for Gigabyte
Gb stands for Gigabit
GZ stands for Gigahertz

Something to remember is that Gigahertz (GHz) is always used for The CPU processor speed while Gigabyte is used to specify a Size of hard drives. So a Intel processor is a 3.0 gigahertz processor( hertz is a unit of frequency) and a western digital hard drive would wb a 250 gigabyte Hard drive(unit of information or computer storage).
