Just got my new system i downloaded HWmonitor, Malewarebytes, but i heard malewarebytes is not really for viruses. Can someone link a good virus program? i had a Norton subscription on my old PC , should i just reinstall that on my new rig?

Also, Can some one link me up to date drivers for the Evga GeForce gtx 770, it has acx cooling but i doubt that will make a difference in what drivers to get.

Avast antivirus is free and somewhat better than Microsoft Security Essentials. At least it hasn't failed AV certification for the past two years as has Microsoft Security Essentials. Avast also scans your system and lets you know when other software needs updating, such as Flash, PDF readers, etc. It works as well as Secunia's PSI without having to install another program.
 
If you are looking for free: Microsoft Security Essentials is decent, and then scan with malwarebytes from time to time.

For paid: Kasperseky. I dont know about in UK/Europe but on Amazon in US I can find it for much cheaper then retail.

I use Malwarebytes Anti-Malware free version as well as Avast antivurus free version in combination to keep my pc virus and malware free. Been using them for years without issues.

Microsoft Security Essentials is fine and you should get the latest certified driver from the nVidia site as well as the latest drivers for your board from the manufacturer's site.

If you are looking for a paid alternative, I've been using bitdefender and no complaints so far. PC Magazine gave it first place in 2013, Laptop mag gave it first place tied with Karspersky, techradar gives it 4.5/5 which ties for first place with F-Secure and Gdata.
