Do this all the time. Set up PuTTY to forward X calls and then run the Xserver with the DISPLAY variable set to the target machine. On the target machine, I run an X client (XWin32, commercial software) and it works for what I need to do. VNC should also be able to run across the ssh tunnel in this fashion. This looks like a good thing to use Google for.
