Get the headset, they're always better.

The mics on headsets are fine. There are usually two wires coming out of the headset, one is for the speakers and the other is for the mic. If you only connect the mic in, then you can use your regular speakers, while also using the mic.

Logitech makes some really nice mic/headsets. I have the cheaper one ($19) and I use it to play WoW and gaming at night. It works fine for that, plus they make a couple of more expensive models. A few are on Newegg, take a look:
