50 to 60 million records.Hardware Config required

Hi There. I have a problem which i'm hoping someone can help me on.

I have a project to handle where there are close to 50 to 60 million records.

My job would be migrating the data from textfile to a database and then develop a UI to query the data.

My only worry is the performance hit on SQL Queries. So it would be a great help if you anybody can answer my following questions, 1. Which is the best database MS SQL Server, My SQL , postgres ? 2. What should be the average Server hardware configurations? 3. Assuming there will be no update operations, should i consider table partitioning ?

[B]Thanks in advance

New code box

There's a new way to format code on the site - the red speech bubble logo will automatically format T-SQL for you. The original code box is still there for XML, etc. More details here.
