Micro ATX Slim case build to fit behind dual monitors on desk

I am switching from Mac to PC, and hoping to build my own computer that will fit behind the monitors on my desk.

Essentially, a case like this one would be about all I have room for.

This computer will be used for day-to-day tasks (quicken, email, browsing) but also some amateur photo editing.

Ideally, I would like to have a quad-core processor, 16GB of ram (with space for more), and two monitors (24" Maximum due to space restrictions).

Thank you in advance!

EDIT: Budget is around $1500 (feel free to go over if you think it's worth it in the long run)

No. Windows 10. Budget is around $1500, but I could potentially go higher.
