I'm looking for a pare of dac and amps for under 300 dollars and I hope that these will work well enough for these headphones. Will they?

It depends on a lot of factors....
 
Will you be running multiple sources to the same dac/amp?
 
Are you going to have speakers running out as well as headphones? 
 
Do you have any space limitations?
 
What is your source? Computer audio, CD player, vynyl?

I will only be using the dac and amp for my headphones
I already have an amplifier for my speakers. 
I don't see how space limitations could be a problem, unless the amp and dac is fricken huge.
My source is my computer, 320 kbps mp3 files.

I have both the HD600 and HE400 running off a new Vali and I really love this new amp.  It matches up well with both but it makes my HE400 really shine.  My normal amp is an Asgard 1 and I like the Vali better.  You won't be disappointed using it with either one.  I am using an uber Bifrost as DAC so I can't speak for the Modi.
