Couldn't figure out what I wanted. I play games, listen to music, movies etc and needed a pair of headphones for these activities in my condo.
I looked at a bunch of retailers in Toronto for a decent set of headphones and most of them carried the HD 650's and they're asking about $650 for them. Ultimately I decided on these headphones because of the price vs. the MSRP.
Now that I've purchased them, does anyone have any suggestions for an AMP to hook up to my PC? Also, does anyone know of any aftermarket cables that have a boom mic attached?

In all honesty? Your PC "MAY" be able to drive them fine(mine does). Many people way overblow how much power is needed to drive them. "scaling" is one of their favorite words about how this 2,000 dollar amp makes them sound better.
That being said, The Element is a lovely looking one if you have the budget. The Objective 2 or Magni 3 are standard entry-level ones, and the FiiO E10k is a good budget DAC/Amp if you are just having issues with onboard sound and don't want to deal with it anymore.
One attached to the cable? Not that I'm aware of. The Antlion Modmic or Massdrop Minimic would work though.

Thanks, I currently have a pair of Sennheiser gaming headphones which have a 150 ohm impedance and they sound terrible, I'm assuming it's my motherboard so these I'm expecting to be worse

One of the G4ME series? One or Zero? If they sounded terrible and weren't getting very loud, then yes, you might want to look into a DAC/Amp.

They are the PC 350 SE gaming headphones (won't make that mistake again, buying gaming headphones). These things are very hallow, again assuming it's because of the lack of amp, regardless of that they are very uncomfortable.
