In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 9800M GT SLI are massively better than the Nvidia Quadro NVS 160M.

The Quadro NVS 160M was released less than a year after the 9800M GT, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The 9800M GT has 768 MB more video memory than the Quadro NVS 160M, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the 9800M GT also has superior memory performance overall.

The 9800M GT has 91.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Quadro NVS 160M, which means that the memory performance of the 9800M GT is massively better than the Quadro NVS 160M.

The 9800M GT has 192 Shader Processing Units but the Quadro NVS 160M does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GeForce 9800M GT SLI requires 130 Watts to run and the Quadro NVS 160M requires 12 Watts. The 9800M GT requires 118 Watts more than the Quadro NVS 160M to run. The difference is significant enough that the 9800M GT may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the Quadro NVS 160M.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce 9800M GT SLI is a solution of two GeForce 9800M GT put together using NVIDIA'S SLI technology.
Check the page of GeForce 9800M GT to know more about its chip.
As usual, SLI relies a lot on proper driver support and may suffer from micro-stuttering in lower frame rates (below 30). Benchmarks indicate the performance is overall, up to X% better than a single GeForce 9800M GT performing by itself but at times (depending whether or not the 3D game supports SLI or in the graphics driver) it performed worse than a single GeForce 9800M GT.
A few demanding games will run at the highest settings with fluent frame rates (30+) but overall most games will require reduced settings to be played optimally.
Quadro NVS 160M is a business card with support for special drivers that are certified for professional applications like Microsoft Office Suite, Hummingbird Exceed, Lotus Notes, etc. It's part of the Quadro NVS Mobile Series released by NVIDIA, in 2006/2007/2010.
Though business cards have no driver support for games, some of them deliver astonishing performance (e.g. Quadro 6000, Tesla C2075). Quadro NVS 160M, however, isn't one of them. The performance is enough for all old games and some modern games like the Fifa Series but it's still incapable of playing today's games like Crysis 2 and Metro 2033, even at the lowest settings.
