This worked for me with older videocards,or exotic videocards.
Google a bit around to see what bootoptions you can find. Usually the ones for Ubuntu should work here too. I don't know them by heart.
When you actually do the install, and the installation has finished ,you can use the CTRL+ALT+F1,F2,F3 key combination to switch to different consoles.
In here you can alter the bootup options for the xwindow ,enabling you to still start xwindow properly for your machine.

The server edition, will even run faster then the linux mint one ,because a lot of the requirements for the gui are not there , and since it's the server edition, after the install ,it's up to you to actually start whatever you need.

You could still consider install the server edition ,and install the gui yourself afterwards.
