With these specs, you won't lose any performance at all, at least, not performance that you will notice.
Do you have a specific price range for your Antivirus ? Do you want a "middle package" solution or a "full package" solution ?

Alright, then my recommendation would be either a product from Kaspersky or ESET. Both are the two best Antivirus companies at the moment in my opinion and they're always top scoring in the Antiviruses benchmarks. Their products also have a wide range of useful protection features that you can fully customize by yourself. Kaspersky's middle package Antivirus is the Kaspersky Internet Security while PURE 3.0 is the full package. ESET's middle package is ESET Nod32 while Smart Security is the full package. All these packages include an Antivirus AND a Firewall by default so you don't have to worry about getting a third party firewall.
