Hello,

If you are new to 3D programming, try OpenGL first because it''s easier. Or wait for DirectX 8.0. Once you will understand how it works try DirectX (or if you will wait for DX 8.0, OpenGL). Then chose what ever you want (that''s what I done).
It''s the only fair way...

DX8 will be out by the end of the month. It will be quite a change from DX7, and you might want to wait for it before using OpenGL. But if you want to use OpenGL, fine.
