    hello vpsboard can you help me about my problem regarding my VPS ? I have a 1gb ram KVM VPS and the OS I have installed is a centOS 6.5 32bit  .

    I want to access my VPS and browse internet using it what things do I need to install to have a desktop view on my VPS ?

    There's multiple ways you can approach this.

    1. Use the VPS as a VPN Node or a Proxy.  Route your traffic through the VPN from your primary desktop.

    2. Install a desktop environment and VNC server and use that as a remote desktop solution

    3. Use X2Go as a remote desktop solution.

    4. Use X11 Server + Client to forward remote applications to your desktop (basically think of VNC except only on the application itself)

    Pick your poison.  There are a ton of tutorials out there on vpsBoard and on other websites (Google is your best friend) on how to set any of these solutions up.

    Install Gnome or using VPN connect from your PC

    Depending on latency, GNome would be a good idea if you want a desktop environment, but only if you have low latency otherwise there will be some lag. 

    If you just want to 'hide your ip address' then VPN would probably be the best. Something like OpenVPN.

    If you only have 1GB I'd switch to Debian and install x2go with XFCE4 or LXDE desktop because the memory footprint is slightly lower than CentOS.

    Debian x2go instructions: https://vpsboard.com/topic/4241-running-a-lightweight-gui-on-your-vps-via-x2go

    CentOS x2go: http://wiki.x2go.org/doku.php/doc:installation:x2goserver

    Recent versions of Gnome would be painful on a VPS with only 1GB RAM unless the OP is planning on using Lynx as his browser...

    I am with Scopehosts hosting services from past few months. They do provide best hosting services. I would suggest you to check their VPS Plans.

    Why don't you use an Windows server?

    Install GUI of lighter environments like Xfce in server and connect it via VNC to access it.
    or else Linux RDP can be used to access the VPS.
