The best free antivirus that I know of is AVG Antivirus.

He needs a LOW overhead av...and AVG is a pig. MSE is a decent low footprint AV. Not great but not bad.

IMHO AVira fee > AVG free..but ymmv :)

I'd definitely go for the GT 640 if you want the best performance for the money. Galaxy's GT 640 GC is extremely quiet and compact, and I was really impressed with the performance I got. I was actually able to play Batman: AC in triple display (3840x720) with medium settings on it.

Newegg.com - galaxy gt 640

For you reference, here are my own results from testing several cards in 3dmark 11 (extreme) a while back:

GT 610 GC 2GB: X180
GT 620 GC 2GB: X231
GT 630 GC 1GB: X382
GT 640 GC 1GB: X717
GTX 650 GC 1GB: X1012

As far as antivirus goes, I've also had a great experience with MSE. I more or less forget it's even there since it stays out of the way, and I've been using it on 4 PCs for two years now without a single virus or spyware issue. It also works well on my aging and underpowered laptop.

Between them two cards then the GT-640 ,But I would look around at some reviews .The GTX-550TI is faster and can be found as low as $80 plus the HD7750 is faster and it can be found for around $89 and the HD6850 is almost twice as fast as the GT-640 and it can be found as low as $109.I would tell him to look at a lot of reviews before buying,just because the card is newer dose'nt mean it is faster then last year models.
