Definitely not the M50x if you want any amount of soundstage. Lack of soundstage is atrocious for gaming, and the M50x sounds as if all the sounds are coming from within your own head. They are extremely narrow sounding. They are great for music, but not so much for gaming or movies.
I'd say... Get a Sound Blaster Z sound card plus a ~$100 headphone, pick between the M40x or the Status Audio CB-1. The CB-1 has the best sound in its price class and is more comfortable, but, it lacks in build quality. If you want better build quality with slightly lesser sound and comfort, the M40x is the way to go.
