Looking for a desktop PC that will run two monitors

Can you recommend a desktop PC that will be durable, do basic surfing, and run two monitors? I'd like to avoid Dell. Cost is an issue, but it does not need to be cheap.
I've reviewed this recent question
and this one
, but I'm looking for something a bit different.
My husband's Dell Alienware tower just died. It was 2-3 years old. He needs a new desktop PC, and we'd like to avoid Dell (our last several Dells have had issues). He would like a computer that can run two large (24-inch or larger) monitors without the fan running constantly.
He does basic word-processing and surfing (on Chrome) and listens to music almost constantly. Very occasionally he streams a movie. He doesn't do photo editing or anything like that. He is not a gamer. Having two monitors is his most important criteria for a new computer. He would prefer a tower configuration to the kind that's wider than it is tall.
It doesn't have to be ultra-cheap, but we'd like to get good value for the money. We can spend up to $1500, but are hoping to spend more like $500.
Can you recommend a computer? We already have a monitor, keyboard, mouse, etc., so we're just looking for a tower.
