As previously said, I also suggest Visual Studio, it is great on Windows OS, well it is the best I know...

 

If you ever go to other platforms ( for example Linux ), then I suggest to use QtCreator, it has a really good debugger and the usability is awesome, but it really feels a bit strange to use it for "normal" C++ code. But there is a good alternate too, like Code::Blockswink.png

 

However, if you consider making something big and multi-platform ,it is better to use cmake or other build tools instead the internal project management of Visual Studio or qmake( it's not bad, but not useful for non-qt development ).
