Damn sniped( rdc85 ).
1 BIT of ram or 1 BYTE or ram?
8 bits makes one byte
1024 Bytes makes one Megabyte
1024 Megabytes makes one Gigabyte
This is why a 40 gigabyte drives does not show up as 40 gigabytes in windows
HD/SSD makers show 1 gigabyte as 1000 megabytes(they do all math by 1000 and not the computer friendly 1024).
40(gigabyte) x 1000(megabytes) x 1000(kilobytes) x 1000(bytes)
The take that NEW number
40000000000(bytes) \ 1024(kilobytes) \ 1024(megabytes) \ 1024(gigabytes)
= 37.25 gigabytes
I know this sounds like a pain, just gives you an idea to see how many bytes are in a given size. bits are 1/8th of a byte
This is why 20 megabit internet is only good for 2.5 megabytes/sec despite sales people calling it 20 megabytes a second
