    Alright, I'm going to come off as very stereotypical here, but the best available is found at http://www.vbulletin.com -- it's that simple. Best out there basically.

    if your paying for this software vBulletin is THE choice. Hands down.
    if you want free, check out phpBB - www.phpbb.com
    v2 will rival any free softwares feature and style.

    A good free script that looks promising is:

    Right now, if you have the money to spend then http://www.vbulletin.com.

    In a month or so when phpBB 2 comes out... who knows. But, if you don't have the money then http://www.phpbb.com or http://www.xmbforum.com.
