I personally wouldn't recommend playing FSX on a laptop unless its a very high end one.If absolutely have to get a laptop, get one with a geforce 9xxx series card in it the higher number the better

FSX doesnt support SLI or crosfire so id doubt you will see any improvemnet, from waht i have read some people actually get worse performance when activated.
