We've got a 10 year old server running Windows Server 2003 w/ SP2 as our AD controller. I'm looking at upgrading it to Windows 2008 Server. I know there are a few articles on this but I'm looking for some advice. Should I try to do an upgrade or build new server and install 2008?

Definitely build a new one then dcpromo and transfer roles over. Meinolf has a good document here.
Also as first build step AND last step before dcpromo run the system update readiness tool.
Then check the
file for errors. You want to be error free for sure.
