You can download SQL 2012 Express (SQLEXPR_x64_ENU.exe) from http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=29062
Also download Management Tools (SQLManagementStudio_x64_ENU.exe) so that you can manage your SQL instance after installation.

Refer to "System Requirements" section on same page to make sure you have proper system config.
