Best Security Software for new build

I am going to build a new gaming pc but wanting to get some security software. It has been a while since i owned a pc and had a few questions.

1) What security do I need? i.e virus, malware etc

2) What brands should i get for each required protection? Willing to spend money, I don't want my new build to slow down

Thanks
Really appreciate the help
