It depends on the box's use. If you are going to use it as a webserver and thats all, then you dont need a GUI (KDE,Gnome) installed on it. Its just as easy to install and configure apache (or whatever webserver you want to install) without a GUI.

Not in any kind but a GUI installation just adds a lot of not required shit to the box

There's no point in wasting space installing unneeded apps or using resources to start them or time turning them off. If it's not going to be an end user system, it's best to trim out as much as possible.
