i'd suggest taking look at xming or mobaxterm

can xming be integrated with xshell? or does it need to be putty? – user157195 Jun 24 '11 at 10:13
well, for most part, places where i used xming had it already set up, so i never really got to poke at it. i don't recall what they used with it.… this indicates its possible. – Journeyman Geek Jun 24 '11 at 10:40

There's Cygwin/X. Can be overkill just for X (although a highly recommend installing cygwin anyway), or xming which is more self contained.
