Hello yewshong :-)

For the game I´m making, I use SDL, www.libsdl.org.

For "which one is the best?" can´t say really anything, sorry.

Id personally go with SDL or Win32.
If youre just starting definetely go with SDL. Otherwise it may be wise to stick with SDL as well since then your project can easily e made cross platform.
I tend to use SDL with OGL and Win32 with DX.

I use Win32 with GL, but I don't like it very much. Pretty soon I'm going to switch to SDL, once I know enough GL.

SDL works fine for me, it really helped getting started both with 2d and 3d programming, because its pretty easy to use.
Win 32 can be very confusing and draw your attention away from the importent stuff.

Third post's the charm eh yewshong?

Anyways, I've written a custom GUI wrapper that I use for creating my rendering windows. It uses Win32 on the windows platform.
