Just ordered my new i7 build. Equipped with a OCZ Vertex SSD SATA II Drive and crossfire video; wondering after i install my Win7 .iso what Virus Protection Prgm should i get for it? Willing to pay for it.
Havent paid for antivirus in years, im running AVG and Ad Aware both the free versions. AVG hasnt let me down yet so i recommend them, especially since stuff like norton costs $40 a year and AVG works just as well but the cost for the free version is covered by their commercial subscriptions.
I am using NOD32 by ESET works well with Vista 64 i am sure it will suport win 7

Here is a link of a review of some recent anti virus software by Tom's. Here they test both free and commercial anti virus software so it should give you a nice selection of information.
Note: The review is 3 months old but is still pretty up to date.
havent tried it on win7 but the easiest fit and forget AV is AVAST
Antivir is a slightly stronger package , but lacks too many features in the free version . Things like real time email scanning are important , and it bugs you to update . Very useful second opinion that you turn on every now and again .
