I am considering setting up a PC for office use, no gaming at all.

My options so far for the PC are:

1) Dell Optiplex 790 or
2) HP 6200 Pro

My option for Video Card:

2x Dual 512 AMD Radeon HD 6350.

Finally monitor options:

2x New Samsung SyncMaster S22A300B with DVI-D and VGA connectors
1x existing AOC 19" with VGA connector

Has anybody got any experience/feedback/suggestion with this setup?

And OS will be Windows 7.

I wouldn't see why it wouldn't work.  You have enough ports.  Just go for it.

The AMD Radeon HD 6350 comes with a splitter cable to connect two monitors to one port since it is a low profile card.  My only thought is that since you are possibly mixing VGA and DVI connections, verify with HP or Dell, that your new system will come with 2 splitter cables, one for DVI and one for VGA.
