Best Security Suite for RAM used?

Hi all

I see on a forum that mcAfee uses almost 200mb of ram whilst scanning and whilst just sat there doing nothing it uses around 60mb.

Does anyone know what AVG, Kapersky & G-Data uses?

Cheers!

I've found Kaspersky to be fairly light on resources see specs click here

Running task manager on my Vista system with 4Gb Ram it shows Kasperky as using just under 3000k in idle and around 17000k when the application is open.

Eset Smart security I find to be light on resources, as well as running it on this quite high spec desktop, it's also on an old DELL 610 with no slowdown.
