I just purchased AGK. I plan on doing to do a fresh install of windows, visual c++ express, and AppGameKit on my computer.

The instructions I found list that you need:

Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 or higher
Windows XP / Vista / Windows 7

Is windows 8 supported? Will I need to install a DirectX SDK? Is the express editions of Visual C++ supported?

Windows 8 is not explicitly supported. But AppGameKit appears to work on it reasonably well.

I would highly recommend using VS2010 Express (not the 2008 version).

Yes, you will need to install the DirectX SDK and VS Express is supported by it. This page has a link to where to get the correct DirectX SDK. And it also has some things about customizing the template. I have not uploaded v10811 templates to that page because they pretty much work out of the box.
