Our Sharepoint Database Server will be moved to a new server, can someone please advise where we need to make the changes so that it points to the new server?
Any help will be highly appreciated as I'm new to Sharepoint 2010.

You need to follow this guide:
1) Run this stsadm command:
stsadm -o renameserver -oldservername oldservername -newservername newservername
2) Rename and reboot server.
3) Enter Central Admin and look over all your Alternate Access Mappings (you’ll have to change to the new server name everywhere the old server name still shows).
4) I didn’t have this problem with 2010, but you might have to check and possibly reset your site collection admins. I wouldn’t be surprised if you’ll have to go over your host names in IIS in case you are using host headers also.
hope it helps :)
