I use StrFormatByteSizeW , but you can always make your own routine that calculates this information with basic math.
Imports System.Runtime.InteropServices
Imports System.Text

Public Class Form1
    <DllImport("shlwapi.dll", SetLasterror:=True, CharSet:=CharSet.Unicode)> _
    Private Shared Function StrFormatByteSize(ByVal qdw As Long, ByVal pszBuf As StringBuilder, ByVal cchBuf As Integer) As IntPtr
    End Function
    Public Shared Function FormatByteSize(ByVal bytes As Long) As String
        Dim fbs As New StringBuilder(64)
        StrFormatByteSize(bytes, fbs, fbs.Capacity)
        Return fbs.ToString
    End Function
    Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
        Debug.Print(FormatByteSize(My.Computer.Info.TotalPhysicalMemory))
    End Sub
End Class

It is:

TextBox3.Text = My.Computer.Info.TotalPhysicalMemory \ (1024 * 1024 * 1024)

Or if you want to display decimal, try this:

       TextBox3.Text = (My.Computer.Info.TotalPhysicalMemory / (1024 * 1024 * 1024)).ToString("#.00")

which will display 2 decimal points, like 3.37.

Or even this simpler code:

TextBox3.Text = My.Computer.Info.TotalPhysicalMemory \ 2 ^ 30
