Default gaming/server mother board

is it possible to have a server motherboard(and use ram capacity and other features) and use it as a normal computer playing high end games and such?

what im getting at is, if u can build a "computer" with a server motherboard and use it like a normal computer?

I would assume so, but it's probably not reccomended.

I don't see why it wouldn't work like a normal computer. But I'd just stick to normal hardware, the server stuff is designed for servers, not gaming. And server mobos etc are pretty expensive. It's not going to be a problem to build a desktop that can handle all of the new games.

No problem with that. Just beef up the other components for gaming.
