While looking at the specs of both the Quad Core Mac Pro and the Server Mac Pro the only difference i see between them (besides the RAM and memory) is that the Mac Pro Server has Mac OS X Server unlimited-client license instead of 18x double-layer SuperDrive. Is the Mac Pro Server designed to me just a house hold computer or more of a business computer.

what exactly is a 18x double-layer SuperDrive and aMac OS X Server unlimited-client license?

It can be either... well-suited to both tasks.

It's a DVD burner that runs at 18x speed.

It's a server that is licensed to allow an unlimited number of client computer connections (as compared to different versions of Windows Server, which typically have a limited number of "Client Access Licenses" (also known as "CALs").

Just a guess based on your question, but I'd say you should be looking at the standard (non-server) model.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
