I use Sygate Personal Firewall, which takes minimal resources, and does not interfere whilst on-line gaming (currently, WOW, as an example), once properly configured. Links to this and other software firewalls can be found here:

I disable my antivirus while playing on-line. The good thing about having separate firewalls, anti-viruses, and anti-spyware applications is that you can manage each one. Norton seems to have some problems and some people say it is a resource hog.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
