Avast 4.8 should work just fine, though I never really cared much for the user interface. Version 5 has a much nicer looking user interface and adds a new feature called Virtualization (sandbox).
You might also want to consider Avira. I use Avira AntiVir Premium (v.9) on my Windows 7 64 bit desktop. Works great and is very light on system resources. I'm also beta testing Avira AntiVir Premium Security Suite 10, which adds thier new ProActiv behavior-based detection technology.

It works just fine on x64. You won't be able to run a boot time scan on x64 with it, but it's not a big deal. Pretty much the difference in the pro versus the free is you get scheduled scans, and one extra security module, a script blocker.
The Beta 5.- they've been working on is progressively getting better, the user interface is way better, it's being built into a more overall security suite. It's free as the beta, once it's finalized they will have a free version of it and a paid one just like the 4.- one is now.
