Using head-fi to read some reviews.
Plus this gaming headphone guide
Does it seem reliable?
As for the mic, I might go for a Zalman mic
AKG's are neither good all around headphones nor do they have much bass. . . what they do have is a very wide soundstage which I'm guessing is why they are recommended for games. Keep in mind that Head-fi is full of nonsense.
