Desktop streaming from a server to low power front end device e.g. RasPi

Latency issues aside, I would like to know what packages I can use to stream a high performance desktop to a RaspberryPi. I cant find anything except stuff about media servers. If I install a VM to a server could I stream that to a headless Pi? The only thing the Pi should have to do is act as is a I/O driver and relay whilst the server does all the work and GUI rendering. Free options are welcome. I just don't know where to start and I don't know if it is even a thing. Is this something that can be done with VMware or VirtualBox? If you all could let me know what packages to use, I can handle it from there. Much thanks.
