It is directly proportional to one's IQ level ---that will vary from person to person. As far as expressing this in GB is concerned ---well it can vary from zero up to a very high value.

Robert Birge (Syracuse University) who studies the storage of data in
proteins, estimated in 1996 that the memory capacity of the brain was
between one and ten terabytes, with a most likely value of 3
terabytes. Such estimates are generally based on counting neurons and
assuming each neuron holds 1 bit. Bear in mind that the brain has
better algorithms for compressing certain types of information than
computers do.

Not GB's sir it will be in TB's. We have enormous capacity to process the information. Our neural network most of it is not utilized all the time, if put to function will be better than a 1 TB hard drive.
