    Ok gang. I know this may be off topic, but I trust you guys, and don't know
    others out there.

    I am working on a mega tourney, clan, ladder site. Could be considered
    similiar to cases ladders with more to it.

    Now I know with everything I will have going on, that using access DB is out
    of the question. So my question to you guys is this, would I be better off
    using mysql or ms sql for this. Or would I be better off using a completly
    diff DB?
    http://tz.gig-gamers.com is the site that is being worked on. I could
    speculate and say there could be a possibility of having millions of members
    on this, which is why the question about the DB.

    Can someone shed some light, or point me in the right direction about which
    would be better please?
    THanks

    It totally depends on your budget. if you can afford sql server, then use
    it.

    Why post there instead of to .db?
