Based on your computer configuration following antivirus works just fine for you.

1. Nod32 - Less load on system. And also affordable if you wish to purchase it for your machine. I have used it for even lower configuration than yours. And the performance wise it is very effective.

2. AVG : They have the simple interface and also less resources for the background UI. And the services can also take care of the security issues in the background. It can also replace the windows firewall for you. And compared to Windows defender and the firewall, it is more effective.

I won't choose Norton and few other antivirus for RAM under 4G. The memory consumption of Norton increases after a while. I don't trust the ratings and the sponsored review system of those antivirus. So I'd tell you that experiment on your own and then decide which is a right option for you.

Well, since your system has lower memory, I would advice you not to opt for the high end anti virus solutions. They are heavy on your resources and having them with real time protection will considerably slow down the performance of your device.
A few of the best options for you would be -

1. Avast
It Is one of the quality anti virus solution available. It comes with an exciting set of features. It also provides you application analysis and such advanced features.

2. BitDefender
It has been voted as one of the best by users. It does not come with many settings. Quite minimalistic in design. Perhaps you will not like it if you want to fine tune the security settings. It has no scans, no settings or no scheduling. Once you install it, it just takes over and handles the real time protection.

3. ESET NOD32
It is one of the effective anti virus program with some good extra features. The software does not interfere with your day to day functionality of your machine. It does not have anti spam filter though.
