    I think that you can use any database, just make sure that your machine will be able to handle it

    The choice is up to you

    For a database with only 500 record you could write them all to a text file.

    MS Access is a great choice if you don't plan on sharing it with multiple users.

    MS SQL 2005 Expres is a great choice if you're planning on growing this database over time, making it web accessible, build an application around this data.

    mysql is a great free choice as well. it's mostly used on website but can also be used in house.

    Depending on what and how it is used, you could even develop it using MS Excel. If so, be sure to use the process of normalizing, so that if you ever need to expand (to using MS Access, etc.) you don't have to start from scratch.
