Your server got game?
Don't install a GUI it will waste resources.

I am going to be using the server as a game server and samba server. I 
also like to use this machine to graphical apps when I fix computers i 
use it to get drivers for other computers. and burn CDs. Just trying to 
get linux all figured out had a chance to see Windoze 7 It SUCKS. I like 
ubuntu better than Windoze 7...
