Well that depends.

For C# there is Mono and Microsoft Visual Studio
Those are the only 2 I know of for C#, but I am sure there are more.

Then you need a SQL Database, now There are a ton of these depends on what you want to do?

Just practice? Go with SQL Express from Microsoft.

Want to develop you may want to look into better Databases like MySQL, PostgreSQL,

Check this link for a comparison:

There are tons more Databases that you may google up, but there are the 3 mains one atm.
