    direct x

    Can you program direct x inside a c++ program.
    I'm assuming it should be the same as openGL.
    Or at least similar.

    correct, you use C++ to program DirectX, just like OpenGL.
    The API is completely different however.

    I recommend you check out www.drunkenhyena.com and www.andypike.com. Very handy sites.

    DrunkenHyena's tutorials mirror OpenGL tutorials on NeHe.com so for someone like yourself, you may find it even more handy
