Hi guys, can anyone help me to understand about impedance, or mainly if my computer able to play the headset nicely?

Its a gaming headset Sennheiser Game One.
I checked the specs, it has 50 ohms

I got this in my Audio:
Intel(R) Display Audio
NVIDIA HD audio
NVDIA V audio Device
Realtek HD Audio

My Mobo: Gigabyte Z97X UDH5H

I prefer not to get another soundcard at this moment if possible.

Thank you.

for future reference t is correct to go by both impedance and efficiency as this gives a better idea of how hard they are to power. using just one or the other will not give a good answer. the game one is based on the hd518/hd558 which are easy to drive so i would think you should have no trouble. most onboard can handle them fine with the exceptions being very poor quality onboard or low end products. of course a good amp can make them sound a bit better but that is optional in most cases.
