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.

Equipment: Asus Strix GTX 1080 |i7 6700k |16gb Corsair Vengence LPX |ASUS PRIME Z270-K |EVGA SuperNOVA 750 G2 |Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO |2TB wd black hdd |Samsung 850 EVO 250GB |ASUS VG248QE 24-inch

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

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

Comodo AV or Comodo Internet Security (AV + FW).

Both free, both highly configurable, both relatively light on system resources.
