Gyproc's recommended configuration for acoustic isolation is to use a layer of 19mm plasterboard next to the studs and a second layer of 12mm acoustic plasterboard over that. Keep the joins between boards staggered between layers. If you want to go even better you can add another layer of 15mm acoustic plasterboard. On my recent studio build I also used Green Glue between layers while on the previous build we had a layer of fibreboard (known as a Camden Partition).
Your local builder's merchant may well offer better deals on plasterboard than the big DIY places.
