In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro FX 1600M are significantly better than the Nvidia Quadro NVS 300M.

The Quadro FX 1600M was released over a year more recently than the Quadro NVS 300M, and so the Quadro FX 1600M is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the Quadro NVS 300M.

The Quadro NVS 300M and the Quadro FX 1600M have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The Quadro FX 1600M has 9.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Quadro NVS 300M, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro FX 1600M is marginally better than the Quadro NVS 300M.

The Quadro NVS 300M has 5 Shader Processing Units but the Quadro FX 1600M does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Quadro NVS 300M requires 16 Watts to run and the Quadro FX 1600M requires 50 Watts. The Quadro FX 1600M requires 34 Watts more than the Quadro NVS 300M to run. The difference is significant enough that the Quadro FX 1600M may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the Quadro NVS 300M.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewQuadro NVS 300M is an upper-middle 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 300M, however, isn't one of them but compared to the previous models, it delivers much better performance. The performance should be enough to handle demanding games like, Crysis 2, on the lowest settings possible but games like Metro 2033 are probably unplayable at the lowest settings.
The Quadro line of GPU cards emerged in an effort at market segmentation by NVIDIA. In introducing Quadro, NVIDIA was able to charge a premium for essentially the same graphics hardware in professional markets, and direct resources to properly serve the needs of those markets. To differentiate their offerings, NVIDIA used driver software and firmware to enable features vital to segments of the workstation market; e.g., high performance anti-aliased lines and two-sided lighting were reserved for the Quadro product. In addition, improved support through a certified driver program was put in place. These features were of little value in the gaming markets that NVIDIA's products already sold to, but prevented high end customers from using the less expensive products. This practice continues even today although some products use higher capacity faster memory.
