i'll be the first to say it, if you want to program games you need to learn more before attempting something. I said the same thing when i started programming, that was about 4 years ago and i'm just now working on the game part. So far all i have to show for the game side is a connect 4 rip off.

I started programming in DirectX about four months of learning C++ in uni, I used a book called 'Introduction to 3D Games Programming with DirectX' For you I'd recommend the second version, 'Intorduction to 3D Games POrgramming with DirectX 9.0c: A Shader Approach'.

I don't recommend learning programming, a language and an API at the same time. Forget about DirectX for a while.
