I already got Malwarebytes and Spybot but I dunno what else to get

Windows Defender is really all you will need. Some people like avast, but I like how non-invasive defender is.

Macafee,....no just kidding. that thing is useless against F.B.I Virus and other ransomware like it

I've been happy with MS Security Essentials. It has the standard features and actively keeping you protected from threats, scheduled updates/scans. I used to have AVG but it got so annoying with it confusing a bunch of Steam files as high risk threats. The MS one doesn't get that bothersome.

Should I couple Windows Defender with Malwarebytes, or is Windows Defender good enough solo?

I'd prefer to not have to install anything else.

I have avast running ll the time and once a month or so run a malwarebytes anti-malware scan to check to see if anything has got through.

Windows Defender is good enough. It's an antivirus (the Windows 8 version of Windows Defender only), and that's the minimum everyone should have.
