    yum groupinstall "KDE (K Desktop Environment)"
    yum groupinstall "GNOME Desktop Environment"

or, if you JUST want X with the minimal window manager

    yum groupinstall "X Window System"

you could combine one or more of these on a single command.

    yum grouplist

will show you more groupinstall options...

this is all in the default CentOS repository.
