I am new to Python too, and recently completed my first "real" cross-
platform GUI application with local/remote database access.

I concur with the other replies. I see no need for an IDE and 
wholeheartedly recommend PostgreSQL (which integrates with Python very 
well indeed using Psycopg 2).

I have found wxPython best for GUI. There is even a source code generator 
available for the graphical bits of the application - wxGlade. I was able 
to get up to speed very easily and quickly indeed (though of course there 
is a great deal more to learn). These tools are all FOSS.
