Lightbulb Gaming Rig?

Hello, I was just wondering if i could use a server motherboard for gaming? And if regular PCI-E Card ie. Nvidia Geforce 9800 GT would fit it?

*EDIT* Sorry im off right now and i dont know the exact specs as its not in my room and its not mine but it only needs a graphics/video card.

Using a server motherboard for gaming can be done but it will not run as good. Server motherboards are made for completely different task so your gaming experience may very.

Not really. As long as it has a decent video card in it it should be fine. The question here is if it does indeed have a PCI-e x16 port.
