It really depends upon what you're trying to do with the data and technically, what you're familiar with.
My first DB was mySQL flavor which I designed a web UI around but I didn't build any kind of data analytics around it for tracking costs/currencies. I don't think that applies for everyone but I like to keep track of costs, FX rates, dates, etc so I can look at trends in pricing in my own collection.
I know how to do that fairly easily in Excel so that's what I use at the moment and it's easy to data mine. No site is going to cover what I need, things like arcade PCB monitor orientation, screen inversion etc.
