$1800 budget for high performance workstation

I have been asked by a friend to build a High Performance graphic workstation (Photoshop, 3DS Max, and Revit, etc.) with a budget of $1800 for just the PC. Monitor and accessories not included. I have built many low budget (sub $1000) builds before and this larger budget really intrigues me. I want to get him the best value. I have initally thought about dual socket server AMD board but not sure this is best option since it would eat into the budget quickly. I have done RAID 0 HDD drives before and wonder if SSD would be worth the money compared to 4 drive RAID 5. Also preference is 6 core AMD Phenom XII. 16GB RAM?
