My condo is on the 2nd floor. I want to replace all 800 sq ft of tile and replace it with either and engineered wood or laminate floating floor. I can get the tiles off with some thin-set left. When i chip off the left over thin-set there is some type of concrete, I think it is gypcrete. It seems light weight and i can chip away at it semi-easily. The surface of the gypcrete is not smooth. What do i use to get the surface smooth enough to lay the floating floor? Approx how much would that material cost for approx 800sp ft?

is what you need. Several brands available. Go to a real supplier( as opposed to HD) and describe what you are going over.

You are not filling 800 sq ft. You are filling X# of volumne. So how much you need will depend on how much you damage the original and how deep you go

Excellence is its own reward!
