depending on how big the database will be MS SQL Express would be ideal.

Failing that MySQL is another option that runs well on desktop platforms.

It looks like you want to connect to a database server and consume the data on it from your PC
If that is your need, then use "SQLite Database Browser" (http://sqlitebrowser.sourceforge.net) it´s free
