Would a combination of NIK and Photolab 2 be a good way to go?

No. The DxO Prime noise reduction is always better (and the best there is) and adding more noise reduction after it can only make things worse. If you need noise reduction for things other than RAW files, the Nik stuff may be useful, but it doesn't make sense to use any other noise reduction on RAW files processed with PhotoLab.

Thanks for the reply!  I wasn't thinking of using both programs for noise reduction but rather just in terms of combining the best of the two as an alternative to photoshop.  Wanted to know before I spend $200 on Photolab.
