Although this has been asked literally thousands of times and you now started a flame war, I advice you:
If you like COM (if you don''t know what this is don''t bother), then start with DirectX
If you don''t know/like COM and are also new to C/C++ or you are targetting another platform than WIN32, then start with OpenGL which is in my opinion really the easiest way to get into 3D.

For excellent tutorials on OpenGL visit NeHe Productions

Good Luck
