hi paramjitkakakr,
- your question title is a bit confusing, you asked for 2003 server but you list 2008 servers

- you might be interested to look into this article on Microsoft Technet table on "Comparison of Windows Server 2003 Editions":

The R2 versions of Windows Server 2008, are the newest version. One of things that's different between 2008 & 2008R2, is that the R2 version in only 64bit versions. So if you're planning on deploying some older software that's not supported or compatible with 64bit OS, then the R2 version is not for you.

Other than that, depending on what you are deploying, the standard version will more than often have all the necessary features you need for your server applications. In my company, other than our exchange server, all other servers are standard editions.
If you want to virtual server, then the datacenter edition is probably the most suited version.
Obviously there's huge difference in price, depending on the version you choose.

See this website for more information about the differences:
