I'm getting ready to purchase all the parts for my gaming rig build and im wondering what i should get for Security software(AV/Internet security). I'm switching from my Macbook pro so I don't know all the options for available software or what class Microsoft Security Essentials is under ( AV or internet security. I was looking at Norton 360 for a all in one but it has a high price. Any advice for free software that can give me just as good protection?

Buddy, just get the ESET Smart Security for your PC. I've been using it for some 2 years and don't have any complain but the lack of a Silence Mode for games - but you can shut the alerts off in the menu.
