Running Gnome on CentOS 6.4 using remote connect doesn't work

As mentioned above, the most obvious problem is that you don't have X protocol forwarding set up (X11 is a client/server system where, quite confusingly, a client is a program running sometimes on a remote machine and it communicates with an X Server which you can think of as a graphical system running on your local desktop).

You can set up Putty to forward your X connections but it is a bit involved for a newbie. Instead, consider using MobaXterm which is an out-of-the-box solution providing both X server and remote terminal facility. With it, you can SSH into your Linux box and start X programs ("clients") which will show up on your desktop.
