Neither. Get a nice set of headphones and a clip on mic or table mic. The ATH-M50 and ATH-M50S are $150. The s model has a straight cable. It's good if you have a good sound card which unfortunately you don't. Get a good sound card and get the S model. You'll have enough cable to route to the back of your case.

Edit-word of advice, don't fall for the 5.1 or 7.1 headset/headphone gimmicks.

Where are you? UK? The Beyerdynamic DT770, DT880, and DT990 are good too. Check headphone.com for great reviews. From the looks of the prices, you want to keep under $100-$150.

Well you're not that far from China...go to China and order some . No, I'm kidding. I don't really know any online retailer that sells there.
