Hey I was wondering what kind of DAC I should get for these headphones (if I even need one). I was looking around and I am not quite sure how I should calculate how strong the amp needs to be should I need one to go along with the DAC.

you will need a headphone amp. I recommend the JDS Labs Objective2($120) or if that goes over your budget, I would get the Fiio e10k($76), which is what i have.

Does it matter that that is only the amp or is it a DAC amp combo?

it's only the amp part of a stack, although whether you need a DAC or not is something that only you can know. A DAC is needed if the source isn't good enough (for instance, old onboard mobo). If you are really worried about it or don't know, you can either get a dac along with the amp or get something like the Fiio E10K which is a dac/amp combo.
