Yes, if you know C/C++ then all you need is to get a understanding of 3D graphics and the math that is used in 3D programming.

A good place to start is:
nehe.gamedev.net // This is a good source of examples of programming opengl in C/C++.

Hardware needed is a fast processor(PII+) and a opengl supported video card.

you don't NEED hardware opengl accel., but it's very nice =). So try it even if you have none http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/smile.gif
