Greetings:

Microsoft brought back the MCSE with 2012, although it stands for something different, however you can now get MCSE in Servers or in Desktops

How quickly are you planning to start pursuing your certification?  Windows Server 2012 is just barely out (RTM is out, enterprise customers are promised very soon, and general consumption in a few weeks).  The 2012 exams for the start of the MCSE Server Infrastructure path are predicted to be released 'soon'.  

Windows 2008 R2 is mature, with lots of material for it.

I'd lean towards the 2008 R2 Enterprise Admin MCITP... but I'm biased.

I'd suggest MCITP for Enterprise Windows / Messaging Certs, I'm MCITP for both. However, I do recommend to my students always to ensure that you read material on windows 2003 before coming for classes.

Reason: You should always know how the product has evolved, also most of the clients I work for are still at W2k3 and are looking towards moving to W2k8 shortly. So, it pays to understand the products that were released prior to the ones you study for certs.
