      The shop is correct.
      So, you have not been ripped off.

      Per the Scientific numbering system;

      1 Mega (M) = 1*10^6th power
      1 Giga (G) = 1*10^9th power

      So, 1000MHz = 1GHz

      Depends, if you got an AMD processor its a good deal, if its Intel then you got ripped off, but beyond that yes 1Gig = 1000MHZ.

      Yes 1000 mhz which actually 1,000,000 hz is 1 gigahetz (gig) Also, are you setting up the hard drive yourself? You know you have to partion the drive? You can run scan disk to fix most errors
      on your drive. Let us know what these errors are by the way.
