Chess Database Needed or Not

Post by marknatm »

I used to use NicBase but it is now defunct. What new database should I consider? I have a copy of Chessbase 8 that I'm trying to use, but it seems rather clunky and non-intuitive.
Is there a better choice between ChessBase or Chess Assistant? I have noticed that Youtube info is very scarce when it comes to Chess Assistant. Personally, I think at my rating I probably could do without a database and just live with opening books or Nunn's Chess Openings fed into COW Pro supplemented with my own analysis and training.

Thanks to anyone who can help me out with this?
