VM Interface Passthrough

Hi all, apologies for the noobie question-


My unRAID box is has been running solid for nearly 10 years now on the same hardware. I'm finally looking to upgrade and run some VM's. I am confused about the hardware passthrough though. If I were to passthrough Graphics or sound for example, exactly how would I be interfacing with the Virtual machine? I assume you can't game over VNC with bare metal performance? Would I need to be connected directly to the server in order to pass through hardware? or is there some other way to interface with my VMs?

To run real peripherals with a VM, they must be connected to the server. For example, you pass through a USB card and a video card to the VM and then connect your monitor and USB keyboard and USB mouse to the server to operate the VM.
