Try this link, it may have what you are looking for. Do you already own Borland C++ Builder? I will admit that there are better compilers to use for building DirectX applications, but if you already own that compiler than there is no need to spend more money. Besides, there are probably many others that have done it before.

Or is Borland C++ Builder a free compiler?

I have Borland C++ Builder 5 and I have been learning DX with that. I highly recommend the link listed above by TheMuuj, along with a copy of Tips and Tricks of the Windows Game Programming Gurus by Andre LaMothe. I have my copy within easy reach even as I type this. Although LaMothe uses Visual C++ in his examples, you can still get the idea, you just have to play around with it a bit more.

To be perfectly honest, I do plan to get VC++ professional eventually, I just haven''t wanted to spend the money yet. So far C++ Builder has worked for me, but it has proven to be a bit buggy, and even more important, just about everything DX related seems to be geared towards VC++.

Also take a look at the bottom of the forum page for a forum called "turbo".
