Managed DirectX is a .Net wrapper for accessing DirectX - however it is pretty much dead and unsupported. If you are looking at developing games in .NEt then you are probably best looking at XNA Studio instead.

If you are just looking at writing an application that could benefit from improved UI capabilities then you might want to look at using WPF instead of WinForms for the development.

I've never bothered with XNA, but i feel i should now, how easy is it to learn. I've come so far with my development kit, would b such a shame to just stop it. 2D, 3D, sfx, bgm, joystick, net support, All for nothing.
