Default Good anti-virus/internet security programs

So, Im looking to purchase some new security software. First off, would it be better to get anti-virus software, or internet security? I realize it'd be best to get both, but can only get one at the moment. I have a free trial of the Norton Internet Security on right now, and seems to run pretty well and do a good job. Was just wondering if there was anything better?

If you're looking to purchase some security software, I would say go with one of the following:
BitDefender Internet Security
Trend Micro PC-cillin Internet Security
Panda Internet Security
E-Trust Internet Security

Haven't used BitDefender, but I have heard it's great.
Trend Micro is good, not that processor intensive.
Panda is good, but processor intensive- need plenty of RAM
E-Trust is good too, not that processor intensive.
There's just a few suggestions. You do want to get rid of Norton just as soon as possible.
