I was planning on learning Opengl, but i am just learning DirectX and feel that i need to get more projects under my belt to become comfortable with it before moving on to either Opengl or C#. If anyone can point me in the direction or just name off the top which open source Direct X9 games are available, i would be thankful. Thanks!

I think darwinia had a DirectX renderer aswell as the OpenGL one so it might be worth a look, in general however reading the code for complete games is not a great way to learn.
The voices in my head may not be real, but they have some good ideas!

There is a platformer starter kit for XNA, which is based on DirectX 9. And here is the old documentation to it. Perhaps there is a similar documentation for the latest version of XNA, I haven't seen it.
Whether you use OpenGL or DirectX doesn’t really matter, since they both are quite similar. Once you learned one, you’ll quickly learn the other.
If you know C++, you will easily understand C# code, so that platformer starter kit might be worth a look.
Have some fun with it.
