Drop the Panda av and use Microsoft Security Essentials for free, use the money saved towards an OS, apart from that looks good.

If you have any more cash i'd say get a smallish SSD for your OS and apps, and use your 1tb for data. Even a 6gb mechanical is no match for an SSD.
Your pc will fly much faster with an SSD in charge.

I will eventually buy an SSD but i'm already spending £1k on my PC and software (Not including games/desk)

So I will need to wait a little while for a nice SSD :)

Fair enough, but when you do get your SSD, you'll have to reinstall windows from scratch, unless you buy one with enough capacity to image your 1tb onto.
