    If you are as new to C/C++ as you say you are dont bother with graphics for now. Start out with console-based games (text RPG's, tic tac toe etc), get experienced with the language (really experienced). Because as soon as you involve graphics you make it much much harder than it is with console only.
    STL Util a small headers-only library with various utility functions. Mainly for fun but feedback is welcome.

    I agree with Shakti, but when you do get into graphics - I recommend NeHe's Tutorials (Which are OpenGL).
    The other popular option is Direct X, however it is specific to Windows.

    I'd really venture into learning the language first. PHP is pretty far from C/C++ and are meant to do different things. Jumping straight into Graphics, OpenGL specifically, is pretty risky and could just end up taking a lot of time without understanding the language first.
