IMO in order of best.

 

VS2012  // best for windows

QtCreator  // best for cross platform

Eclipse CDT  // good cross platform but kinda slow, can be difficult to setup.

code::blocks // light on resources but aged, new version in the works

 

Here is a pretty good list of IDE's by language.

A new binary release of CodeBlocks was released just a few months ago after ~3 years.

But also, the latest version is always available too, called "nightlies".

While I'm using Eclipse for my Java projects, I generally use CodeLite + mingw to code in C++.  Codelite is the closest thing to professional MSVS that I've found and it's lightweight.
