Managed DirectX tutorials

Hello people.
I am looking for comprehensive tutorials, books and info on making graphics, games.
Since I am a rookie in this field I'd rather go with the IDE that I know (.NET) and Win platform (obviously) so I guess DirectX...

    You can use GL on Win32, and I'd recomend it over DirectX. DX is slower and much harder to learn. Plus, if you ever pick up a more comprehensive language (C++ for instance) you can port GL to Unix or Mac, where DX cannot be ported.

    From what I understand DirectX is getting a lot of focus this days.
    Not to mention games that I play ask usually for DirectX versions...

    DX is slower ? No - a pain ? - yes in my opinion.

    The underlying concepts of computer graphics are however the same :).

    Most games can make use of either - OpenGL or DirectX.
