The best development software in my opinion would be Microsoft Visual C++ 5 or 6, its packed with features and is 100% compatible with OpenGL and DirectX, though you will need to pay around $160 for the basic package, more for the optimized PRO version. If you cannot afford VC++, use the Borland C++ compilier. Its free, and its just as good as MS CV++ according to many programmers who use it.

Go to www.winprog.com if you need a tutorial and source code for Win32 API programming. For game specific code, check out the GameDev tutorials and Download.com for the source code to some commercial games.
