If you can run anything you want on the server, X will very happily use
your (local) GUI display with (remote) applications.  Not so good over
the public internet, but very usable on a LAN for many things. 
Alternately, I've sometimes used sshfs to mount an ad-hoc part of the
remote filesystem locally so that local GUI programs could directly
access the files.  sshfs may only be available on Linux, still (it
needs fuse at your end and ssh/sftp access to the remote).
