    Alright, lets say I have 2 computers.
    1 that has a terrible graphics card, which cannot play any downloaded games like MapleStory, Exteel, ROBLOX, etc.
    and the other one that has an awesome graphics card which can play these games.

    I set up a VNC server and on the computer with the BAD graphics card, I'm viewing the computer with the GOOD graphics card.

    Can I play MapleStory, Exteel, ROBLOX, etc on the bad computer because it is connected to a VNC server where the other computer has good graphics?

    Yes, you can. Prepare for an epic lag fest though if it's connected via the internet and not via your network.

    Alright. I was just wondering, not really doing.

    It will likely be easier to use StreamMyGame than VNC. Lower resolution unless you pay, but actually playable.

    Streaming has a slightly different flaw to VNC: input lag. There can be anything between 5ms to 200ms input lag, which in time dependant games can mean slower reactions (e.g. in MapleStory you'll move, jump and attack slower... and the jumping mini-quests will be practically impossible).

    That's only if you use something like TeamViewer which connects online.
    RealVNC allows you to choose where you're connecting to via IP address (so you can choose a local IP).
