    A lot of people will say OpenGL, but I haven't tried it yet. I started with DirectX and I find it to be really easy. If you want more info on both try: - for OpenGL

    and: - for DirectX

    I'm working on a DirectX tutorial now that will be aimed at a complete DirecX newbie. I hope to have it finished in the next few weeks. When I do I'll post it here (html files in a zip) so you can check it out then.
