I want to buy a new headset and its either Sennheiser G4ME ONE or Sennheiser G4ME ZERO.
The G4ME ONE got 50ohm and G4ME ZERO got 150 ohm.

I do NOT have either a soundcard or an amplifier, I just use the inbuilt soundcard in the motherboard.

Will 150ohm be a problem then?

Motherboard: ASUS P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3

All I can say is WOW....that's a lot of cash for a headset/mic. That aside, it has the standard 3.5mm jacks to make the connection to either xbox/ps3 or PC. Either one should work just fine with that mobo.

The 150 ohm set will not be a problem. The higher impedance means they will require slightly more power to diliver the same audio volume. It also means they will have less chance of being blown out when used with higher power sources (such amplifiers and mixboards).
Defending freedom of expression in the face of oppression is noble.
Insisting on the right to be obnoxious and offensive just because you can is infantile.

Spending that much on a headset, I'd suggest a T-Amp or an aftermarket sound card geared towards headsets.
