Michael's examples are a little dated, but only a little. The same principle still applies to newer server hardware, where it's often a newer chip but even weaker graphics capabilities. AFAIK, the main reason they ship with an actual graphics chip at all is to plug into a network KVM switch (or tie into an onboard remote management controller that does KVM-over-IP independently of the host CPU) so that you can get a remote display without relying on the OS to run a server for it.
