I take it i need: Latest DirectX SDK? Microsoft Visual Studio(?) But what else? Thanks for all your help.

That's it. You can get the Visual Studio Express Edition free from microsoft (google for it); if you get that you'll likely also need to download the platform SDK also from microsoft (also google for it).

If you've never coded before you'll probably want a much more basic book than that. Games are to programming what a formula one race car is to auto mechanics.
