Is it possible that I could use Direct X to help me program games(graphics)?

RE: Is Direct X for a game programmer?

yes, it is very time consuming to learn and even write things in, if you want to write a game (for beginner to advanced), there are sdk's written to wrap the directx sdk to make graphic/game programming a lot easier, it's like programming in DX but less code, learning curve is greatly reduced.  www.truevision3d.com/html  check out that page, i'm currently working on my own game using this sdk, and the great part about it is that anything the engine can't do you can usually do in native directx and it will all work together.
