I know its kinda gimmick but the USB Creative Sound BlasterX G1 7.1 or similar product will bring those headphones to be Surround Headphones as the PC373? Or i can just use virtual software like Adoby has? and will that extra power that the amp usb will help improve some of the sounds?

amp/dac will always make headphones sound better. Especially if you get one that's is outside of the case like the Astro or Sound Blaster G5 for 7.1 sound. Don't get a sound card for inside the PC case because the inside components will cause interference leading to the "hissing" sound. I've read a lot of threads about this and I've seen a mix of things. People are starting to say 7.1 is crap and going back to stereo sound. For the best stereo sound going with a Schiit stack (Magni + Modi) is the way to go. Currently I use a astro amp and it's definitely a boost over my motherboard and seems legit. I'm looking to upgrade but I can clearly hear foot steps from other player games like Fortnite/PuBG. I currently use the following
Dolbi atmos 7.1 software Philips SHP9500S HiFi open back + astro amp (when playing solo) The philips headset doesn't have a mic
HyperX cloud II cans + astro amp (when playing squads)
hope this helps.

Also to add on, some newer games offer in game virtual Dolby support, this is usually the most recommend way to have virtual surround sound because the game engine will actually take into account game objects directly, instead of first converting to surround sound and then creatively down mixing that sound into stereo.
