I am learning CompTia A+ and I wish to know more about how data runs through the internal hardware. Mostly I know all the parts and what they do. But I feel it is essential to understand what is most basic, data itself and memory. Basically Bytes and Bits. I have ready a lot about it and understand most things. I do feel stupid asking such things which I am sure are easy to others. 8bit, 16bit, 32bit and 64bit represent how many locations the register can access on the memory 2^n, eg. 2^8=256 locations. Now 8bits equals 1kb and here is where I feel so stupid, thats only 1kb and yet a computer can move gigabytes of data.
Some help on this would be wonderful, it will help me understand so much more, even if it's not in the study material, and ease my frustration.
