    Easy to use Forums / Messageboard software?

    Hey,
    I've heard good things on Invision board and PHPP boards.
    I was wondering, which would be the easiest to use and admin for a total non-technical Newbie like myself.

    Also, I need one that is efficient, b/c I have limited bandwidth.

    Can anyone estimate how many users/daily posts a GB/Month would allow?

    Thanks!!

    vBulletin is definitely the one to go for if you have the capital, if not phpBB2 and InvisionBoard are great free alternatives As for bandwidth I operate a phpBB2 site which has around 10,000 posts and 171 users. It was started on 27th May and gets about 130 posts per day and it pushes 4GB a month. I actually moved the board from using InvisionBoard to phpBB2 because I feel it has much better moderation tools, the board will be getting moved to vB in the near future
