D3D is the core graphical functionality of DirectX. D3DX is a sort of layer on top of that, with loads of helper functions and premade wrappers. You don''t need to use D3DX at all, but it certainly can help if, for example, you don''t want to write your own .TGA image file loader, or to write your own mesh builder.
