Need help picking out a headphone to replace my gaming headset.

I was looking to get a pair of headphones to upgrade from my current gaming headset and I was wondering if the Sennheiser HD 6xx is a good option for gaming, and I would like suggestions of what headphones would be a good replacement.

The AKG K7xx is much better for gaming, but both this and the HD 6XX need an amplifier and preferably a semi-decent DAC as well since they are revealing of such things.
Something cheaper, not in need of an amp or good DAC, and good for gaming is the Audio Technica ATH-AD700X or AD900X. Both might be better than the HD 6XX for gaming due to their more open sound presentation.

I was also thinking, with the Audio Technica ATH-AD700X and AD900X, would a amp and DAC help improve the sound quality or would it just be the same?
With a modern day, higher end motherboard, it's not really going to help much at all.
