VS includes the free Express Edition of SQL Server. You may already have it installed (e.g. named instance "localhost\SQLEXPRESS").
Regardless of what database you choose, it is best to use a managed provider in .NET code (System.Data.SqlClient in the case of SQL Server). For databases other than SQL Server, a managed provider may be included with database client software. You can use still use ODBC (System.Data.Odbc) for data access if a managed provider is not available.
