I currently have HYPERX Cloud Alpha Pro, Shure SE215, Pinnacle P1 + Dolby Atmos + a motherboard that supports Realtek S1200A Codec and DTS® Custom audio.

I mostly play Call of Duty Warzone + Forza Horizon 4, some Netflix + iTunes.

edit: I'm considering getting DT990 500ohms as well in 2 months maybe.

I'd recommend to drop the DT990 and to search for an easier to drive headphone.
But it depends on the DT990 model you're heading for.
If you don't want do buy a dedicated headphone amp, pick the DT990 Edition 32ohm model.
They do sound identical to the higher resistance ones, hence they're a lot easier to drive out of your mobo sound chip.

Thank you for your comment!
What about the Creative G6 or FiiO k5 pro?
