Windows Firewall. Low load, no installation, tastes great, less filling.

The only difference between the free version and paid version is technical support. If you need tech support, Buy the professional version. Otherwise the free version should do the job.

This is what I am using at present on my Windows 7 x64 Home Premium and Windows XP Professional on two of my laptops after using Kaspersky, Norton Internet Security, Zone Alarm Security Suite (all paid versions).

Comodo is available for both x86 and x64 windows platforms.

This is my personal choice and I recommend it. Others may recommed different softwares. Please read reviews of the choices available and make up your mind.
I also recommend what you have mentioned. It's a very good setup.

Biggest problem about Comodo is it is OVER protective. Installing something can take a bloody age, pressing "allow" a ridiculous number of times it drove me up the wall, and I ended up taking it off. And Sphinx, which works alongside Windows 7 stopping programs "phone home" which Windows Firewall WON'T do, the horrendous noise it makes before it displays a dialog box for allowing connection, and it just refuses to allow Giveawayoftheday to connect full stop. The prog has to be uninstalled before it allows, and repeated requests to Sphinx just falls on deaf ears (because you're not PAYING. The free one is just ignored) Comodo over the top, Sphinx blocks the wrong progs, Online Armor - you download the FREE firewall and it ISN'T, it immediately goes to 30 day trial !
The basic Windows Firewall is good for incoming ONLY.
As for Routers, Ive never been able to suss how they work as a firewall.

I'm using the Windows built-in firewall, and it's fine, but I'm sure it's not the best. With a proper configuration it does a good job filtering unwanted traffic, both incoming and outgoing. Just don't trust the default settings, they are completely insecure. The only thing I REALLY miss with it are the notifications when connections are blocked, it's a serious drawback.
I would like to try Comodo somewhen, it seems very capable too.
