Need help picking out a headphone amp or DAC

Sound Cards and Computer Audio - www.overclock.net
My brother has been complaining that his Sennheiser PXC 450s sound bad on his laptop, so I thought I would get him either an amp or a DAC. Do I need both or would just one suffice? Doesn't a DAC need an amplifier though?

My total budget is around $100-200.

I was thinking of getting him either a Fiio E10 or a O2+ODAC Combo. Obviously the second is out of my price range, but could I start out with just the amp (which is like $110) and buy him the DAC later on?

Thanks.
