Guys, I'm way in over my head on this. I've read a lot about how I shouldn't get gaming headsets because they're gimmicks w/ their alleged 7.1 surround and poor quality etc. I enjoy my G430's, but supposedly getting a sound card and proper headphones is way better. I will be using my headphones on my PC for gaming for the most part, and if it's music, it's alternative/metal as well as bass heavy stuff. So, what should I get?

I've got a pair of ATH m50x, which I use day-to-day with my phone, and I really enjoy using them. Could I use these with a sound card to get a better level/sense of surround than the G430s? If so/if not, what should I get? Currently using the Maximus VII Ranger mobo for all things sound on my PC. I'd like to not use more than roughly 150£, unless it's necessary (I can go up to 2000. I would also need a new mic, since I'm using the one with the G430, so any tips on that too would be nice. I also live in Norway, so that might restrict this a bit. Amazon can get a bit expensive with import tolls, shipping and all.
The most important thing for me is being able to locate sounds in-game. The audio quality doesn't have to be top notch, since I'm usually just worried about what I'm hearing, and hearing who I'm talking with.

A few norwegian websites if it helps:
https://www.komplett.no/subcategory/11211/lydkort (the website I use the most, and its selection of soundcards)
https://www.dustinhome.no/group/hardware/pc-komponenter/lydkort/
http://www.pixmania.no/data/komponenter/lydkort-774-s.html (seems kinda dodgy, never used them before, but apparently legit)
MPX.no is also an option, though more business oriented I believe.

Thanks for any help in advance.

Edit: no need for speakers, since I alredy have some. I don't have the space for the surround it provides though.

Got the exact same speakers! They're great, but I don't have the space to set up all the speakers unfortunately.

Sorry I missed the (headphones) part.

You don't need to buy anything, bro.
