Additional underlayment needed ??


I am planning to use Pergo laminate floor from Lowes for my house (two stories). Pergo series American Cottage, Casual Living, and Global Passage, they all have pre-attached premium underlayment.

Is that enough for concrete subfloor (downstair) and plywood subfloor (upstair) ? Or would it be beneficial to add an additional standard underlayment ?

I am trying to reduce the total cost and see if I can go without the underlayment if I use Pergo laminate with pre-attached underlayment.

I'd at least put down a 6 mil poly vapor barrier on the concrete.
