Your question doesn't make a whole lot of sense. What exactly are you trying to do?

Gnome and KDE Desktop will work fine for gaming. Its just getting your video drivers setup with 3D capabilities. If you want to run windows games you need to install something like wine.

Code:
# yum install wine
It is really as simple as that.

I assume you probably already got wine installed but if you want more information on it you can go to www.winehq.com

And I also would like you to read this forum on wine. It has a few things that might come in handy

http://wetalklinux.com/index.php?topic=18.0

if you install your games and windows programs with different prefixes you can easily delete the prefix to uninstall programs.
