Microsofts compiler is now free - though the IDE is not, I don''t have the link handy but if you look through the April / May news archives on gamedev.net

This page will be useful for tools and stuff

http://www.gametutorials.com/links.htm

including

http://www.bloodshed.net/

which I hear quite a few people use.

The usual Dev-C++ IDE
Also Digital Mars compiler is pretty good, comes with MicroEmacs which, if you know how to use it, can be a very helpful development environment.

Finally, interesting site describing how to get Microsoft''s compilers, SDK, STLPort etc. working with the (free) eVC (MS embedded visual tools). As the site points out Microsoft have now released their optimising compiler for free so you should be well set up with all that.
