Need to run software remotely with a graphical interface. Virtual Private Server?

I have a situation where I need to have a piece of software running close to a server in a different country and have as low a ping time as possible. The software has a graphical interface, and while it doesn't matter if there is a small time lag between what I see on my screen here and the program itself running, the next link between the program and the server does needs to be a fast link.

I was wondering if a virtual private server would suit my needs or if there was something else that is more suitable.

You could as you said place the server next to or even on the same platform using virtual machines giving a low latency connection between the applications; and then just use RDP or VNC to view the desktops remotely.
VNC is OK. Just install VNC Server on the server, then install client on your pc to watch/remote control the server.

Remember to set the quality of the screen suits the speed of your connection
