No processor info, no board info, no OS info, no graphics info.

 

No, you cannot play games on it.

 

I do not recommend any servers.

Hello ABihl,

 

Thank you for contacting Intel Server Support.

 

According to the information provided by Al, it is not recommended to use a Server System as a Gaming Desktop Machine because the Intel Xeon Processor does not have a high-performance integrated graphics card in order to support the graphics of many of the recent games in the industry.

 

Could you please so kind and provide us more details about the server model and processor model you bought?

 

However, you can check the following website from Nvidia where indicates that there are some Graphics Cards validated for some Server Manufactures: https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/data-center/resources/vgpu-certified-servers/

 

Please let me know if you have more questions and I will be more than happy to assist you.

 

Best regards,
