When it comes to peripherals, it is largely personal preference as to which to get. My advice is to see if you can get your hands on them before you buy and wear them, even if it is just in a store.
Heres a good headhones buyers guide. Skip to 2min for the releveant bit, though its good to watch the whole thing.

To tell you the honest truth, I have no clue.
I myself am debating whether to get a $30 sound card for my Razer Carcharias headset. So I'm stuck on lesser problems than your dealing with.
I just know that with peripherals it is extremely subjective and no answer will be universally right, so I gave you the link so you could be better informed to make the right decision for you.

Probably the soundcard. If you have something better then onboard, why not use it?

got the 1500s an can vouch that there great for gaming. while a little lacking on bass its not a great problem when the sound quality (especially in 7.1) is top notch. motherboard an some usb chips have great sound now depending if you get the right ones. If you can test a pair in somewhere that would be even better.

^^ I breifly tested one for about 5 minutes at my friends; sounded slightly better than an un-broken in PC 350 headset on my Xense. Or basicall,y blown out by my Xense + ATH-m50 combo.
