Are there any book which teach about to create a professional game programming such as the games from the Blizzard Company?

What is the best software to create that game?

Most game people seem to use 3D Studio Max and Visual C++.
So now I know why you were asking about 3Dstudio cards.
Put this question in the programming bit, that'll probably get a better response.

Hello mindbender, I agree with you... indeed, most people use either 3D Studio MAX, Softimage, or Lightwave to create the 3D object and then program the game using the Visual C++... :)

Two books that helped me immensely are:

"Teach Yourself Visual C++" (MIS Press) ISBN:1-55828-475-3  and
"Tricks of the Game Programming Gurus" (SAMS Publishing) ISBN:0-672-30507-0

They're both excellent texts - the latter having a good section on treating graphics ("sprites") as objects.  Both books were rather pricey a few years back, but you may be able to find them at a 1/2-price bookstore or a used-book seller somewhere.

I was in the same situation as you are, and the following books helped me a great deal:

Game Design - Secret of the Sages (by Brady Games)

Game Architecture and Design

Black Art of macintosh Game Programming

They are all available on the Net through Amazon.com.
