    As a beginner u have to learn DirectDraw for simple graphics and 2d graphics.

    For further programming and 3d, u should use Direct3D

    I think, that u have to have enough pratice with 2D graphics for working with 3D graphics.....

    i'd just go with 8. I think doing 2d in 8 is easier than 7.

    you're going to have to learn it eventually anyway. Direct3D is a lot faster on most systems then DirectDraw is anyway.
