just built my pc, obviously for gaming I don't want something too heavy or something that runs background scans. thanks. or do I even need an anti-virus as long as im not being an idiot and clicking sus links. i would imagine im pretty safe, on the other hand I heavily mod skyrim and fallout 4.

Seems like a very good build, with Windows 10 I'd stick with the built in defender if not needing any extra features.

For Windows 10 I'm not running any antivirus software besides Windows Defender (which is installed with the OS). Can't see the specs.
