Yes it is totally possible and many places do it.

Server Class hardware can offer options like:
Optimized I/O architecture.
Multiple CPU's
Redundant fans
Redundant power supplies
Redundant RAM
Redundant disks(raid)
etc.etc

In other words, the machine is made better and designed to have less downtime.  Some servers don't offer the above, they are nothing more than glorified desktops made to look like servers.

It all boils down to risk.  You spend $1000 on a desktop and you could be fine, but if you have an outage that would have been prevented with server class hardware the $5000+ cost for the server might seem cheap after the fact.
