You have many options. Allegro, SDL, pygame, Grim, DirectX, the list goes on. There''s no best choice, but since you''re in the beginners forum I would suggest you use one of the simpler wrapper libraries like Allegro, pygame etc. and not DirectX. Use Google and browse the homepages of some of those libraries and see which ones have good tutorials, active forums/newsgroups, or any other resources for new users. That should be a big factor in your decision.
