Default Gaming headset

I'm in the market for a new headset, preferably under $100. I don't have a sound card, and don't plan on using it too often for movies/music, just strictly gaming.
I'm on the track of getting the Sennheiser PC151, but any suggestions/recommendations?

Sennheiser make decent stuff. Fwiw and depending where you are, FS has the PC161 model on sale for $80 in chump change.

I believe the only difference b/w the two is the PC161 has more padding and an open back design. Imo, I'd get the PC151 and put the $20/40 you save into a nice game or something.
