Custom graphs, as the name suggests, offer customisation capabilities.

While simple graphs are good for viewing data of a single item, they do not offer configuration capabilities.

Thus, if you want to change graph style or the way lines are displayed or compare several items, for example incoming and outgoing traffic in a single graph, you need a custom graph.
