In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 6800 XT are noticeably better than the Nvidia Quadro NVS 300.

The Quadro NVS 300 was released over three years more recently than the GeForce 6800 XT, and so the Quadro NVS 300 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce 6800 XT when running the latest games.

Both GPUs exhibit very poor performance, so rather than upgrading from one to the other you should consider looking at more powerful GPUs. Neither of these will be able to run the latest games in any playable way.

The Quadro NVS 300 has 256 MB more video memory than the GeForce 6800 XT, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the Quadro NVS 300 also has superior memory performance overall.

The Quadro NVS 300 has 1.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 6800 XT, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro NVS 300 is marginally better than the GeForce 6800 XT.

The Quadro NVS 300 has 16 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 6800 XT has 12. However, the actual shader performance of the Quadro NVS 300 is 22 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 6800 XT is 4. The Quadro NVS 300 having 18 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GeForce 6800 XT performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The Quadro NVS 300 requires 18 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce 6800 XT. We would recommend a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the Quadro NVS 300.
