PHP-Nuke version 8.1 has been released. Preferences administration system has been totaly re-written and reorganized, added BB2Nuke forums 2.0.21, added AutoTheme GPL edition, several security fixes, added more variables check on few modules, fixed several bugs in Topics module, added referers in abridge or unabridge modes, added function to let administrators decide if the users can change the theme or not and many more. Purchase PHP-Nuke 8.1 now for only US$12.
That should be cheap enough. There are also thousands of modules you can add to this.

Simple Machines Forum (SMF) - There are a number of excellent addon modules and my SMF forum have yet to be hacked.Templating is relatively easy and administration is relatively easy.
PHPBB - There are also a lot of addons for this very popular forum. I no longer use it as I have had several sites that were repeatedly hacked even with keeping up to date with the security release upgrades.
Joomla / Fireboard Forum - At this time, this is my favorite combination. Joomla is a highly extensible CMS and Fireboard is an easy-to-install native forum component that has come of age to my liking with a multitude of SMF-like admin configuration capabilities. Though, Fireboard is far easier to modify and administrate.
All the above are open source and therefor available at no cost. The easiest to setup, have running, modify and administrate for a beginner is probably SMF and/or Joomla/Fireboard. Joomla/Fireboard can probably provide you a better platform to work with should you desire other integrated scripts. Either way, though, SMF can also integrate with Joomla, though it is not as seemingless but is still the choice of the Joomla Core Team and the Joomla Forum site.
MY TOP PICKS IN ORDER OF FAVORITE - Mileage could vary. This is based upon my experience and current and projected requirements for most projects.

In the PunBB forums, there are mod releases so you can change the look of PunBB. That is some of them. You can find a lot of them at PunRes (http://www.punres.org under their forums.
PunRes also has some stuff you may want to try in their Wiki section or their site.
