Hope you don't mean you have them both installed, that would be an absolute NO-NO.
Frankly my pick would be Avira. I am not so keen on the total security packages, they always seem to loaded with "extras" which just aren't needed. Avira has a free version which is excellent. That would be my choice. But it is of course a matter of opinion.
You also have to look at the requirements noted by each program and judge there, depends on the size of the computer, how much RAM you have, HD space available...
BitDefender recommends for XP and Vista

Windows XP with Service Pack 2 (32/64 bit) or higher

* 800 MHz or higher processor
* 256 MB of RAM Memory (1GB recommended)
* 210 MB available hard disk space (250 recommended)


Windows Vista (32/64 bit) or Windows Vista SP1

* 800 MHz or higher processor
* 512 MB of RAM Memory (1 GB recommended)
* 210 MB available hard disk space (250 recommended

)

Avira recommends for their Security Suite:

At least 192 MB RAM (Windows XP)
At least 512 MB RAM (Windows Vista)
HD space needed 40 MB + quarantine

Now that is for the full security suite, for just the AV program requirements are less.
