i can't seem to find any IDE other than xcode. xcode is ok, but it's just not my cup of tea. :)

It depends on what you mean by good but you might try jGrasp, which supports a variety of languages, including C++, Java, and Objective-C.

Eclipse and CDT?

I hated it, actually. I think XCode is better.

I've never used eclipse for anything big but I like xcode more.

I like Xcode too! I know there was a bit of a debate going on in another thread about which IDE to use for Java development, but for C, C++ Xcode is pretty good I think. I'm looking forward to the new editor in Xcode 3 with its code folding feature.

macman2790, I find the 'all-in-one' layout the nicest to work in. Have you given it a go?

Does CDT work on Macs now? When I installed it on my Mac, it screwed up Eclipse so badly I had to totally remove Eclipse and reinstall.

To the OP, you could try Qt. There's a free noncommercial version, if I recall correctly. I've only ever used it once though - never found I had a need for it.

CodeBlocks is a multi-platform IDE that I believe is open source. I tried it a while back for kicks and it was ok.

Microsoft (http://www.schwieb.com/blog/2006/08/08/saying-goodbye-to-visual-basic/), Apple and Adobe (http://blogs.adobe.com/notesfrommnr/2005/09/adobe_plug-ins.html) seem to do all their C++ development in Xcode. According to conversations I've had with a few MacBU developers, Codewarrior was their preferred environment for developing in C++, but it's gone.
