    start with the basics, this site is home to some excellent C++ tutorials for beginners, you can also check out the FAQ for any questions you might have, other than that, welcome to the boards!

    -note-
    if you want to learn some basic game programming tips, there's a lot of good sites out there, I'm not sure how much you already know, so some of these might be a bit difficult, but they're always good to bookmark:
