For Directx  -   Beginning DirectX11 Game Programming by Allen Sherrod and Wendy Jones  ( much easier )

 

OR

 

 

Introduction to 3D Game Programmingwith Direct3D 11 by Frank D. Luna (much harder but better)
 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 
For OpenGL - http://nehe.gamedev.net/  
 
OR

Frank Luna's book on Direct3D is probably the best direct x book there is for an intro.

Here's a few I recommend:

 

http://www.codesampler.com/dx9src.htm

http://www.dhpoware.com/demos/index.html

 

I also recommend the GPU Gems books series as well as downloading the NVIDIA SDKs:

 

https://developer.nvidia.com/gpu-gems

https://developer.nvidia.com/nvidia-graphics-sdk-11

 

NVIDIA has alot of great stuff and really useful code samples that I've been fascinated by for years!  Most definitely do not pass these up. smile.png

Whether you're using AMD/ATI or not, those samples should work (the Direct3D ones at least) and aren't always vendor specific.

 

Anyway, you can download the DirectX SDK here: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=6812

The latest DirectX SDK is in the Windows SDK:

Here's why:
