the option on the HP 8540w is the nvida quadro fx 1800m for +$285. is this worth it? the only "games" i will play will be aviation simulation software.

The option is a workstation card and will definitely help with CAD and Maya rendering, but is not so good for gaming. Also remember that a higher powered GPU in a notebook will drain the battery faster. Finally, remember that whatever you choose, you are stuck with because you can't upgrade or remove graphics cards from laptops.

$285 over what other card? Also, beyond the aviation sims, what work/programs will you be using.

Yep, though this sure sounds like a CAD/Graphics laptop. Unless the OP does that, he/she may want to look to a different model and save some money.
