In my industrial experience, standard method regardless of hardware or 
equipment used, is operator station does graphics, separate hardware 
does machine control.  Many reasons for this, including operators 
running music or games or ebay or booting operator station during operation.
In your case, a computer w/o GUI could do control of machine & second 
computer could do you.  Without any GUI, X11, network or video 
installed, your machine might be run reliably at full speed with your 
oldest computer.
