It's pretty much depends on Video Adapters on your nodes. Gnome is nice , but not required.
I prefer Mate Desktop, it may be also set up on your VMs (Fedora 20) and works fine.
CentOS 7 VMs may also run Gnome 3.

Thank you very much. Gnome3 on Centos takes a while to get configured and uses more memory. I notices a reference to Mate at this link:
