It's 1024 unless you're a drive manufacturer...

1024 is binary, 1000 is for decimal so 10Gb in binary is 10737418240 bytes, while a decimal 10Gb is 10000000000 bytes. But there is a catch, most drive manufactures use both, binary up to Kb then decimal thereafter, also you will never find a drive that has the exact size as indicated, you can buy 2 identical drives and they will have different storage capacities.
