If I recall, my reasoning (or justification) for going with the v5900 vs v7900 was that the difference in Maya benchmarks btw the two wasn't very great (and my budget was at its limit)
The difference should be (depending on the scene) in the range of 5-20%, but most of the time in the lesser region. How much you can gain depends on the budget you are willing to spend. (The optimization of some of the Quadros is really huge)
I hope your main question (gaming vs prof. cards) is solved

Do you mean that it does not use all ressources it can (like CPU cores). If so: turn of "Auto render threads" and set your own limit.
