Another forum extension that is out there now is Ninjaboard. IIRC, it's used on the Akeeba forums and I've heard nothing but good things about it.

I've built a phpBB forum off one site I manage, but the only integration it has with Joomla! is the template and menu styling (thanks to RocketTheme).

Many thanks soldier ;) I will check it.
What I tried kunena, its looks good, but little bit slowly and big weight for me.
This php looks like the best solution bc. also its not always good have users on website intragrated also with forum on website.

Second question, if I put php on my joomla site like external link, that php will be basicly another website but under website.com/forum it will use completely different database, so it can be also good solution for run speedy my website ? is it like that ?
Bc. I tested joomla site with kunena and kunena had a lot of database, so it had effect to speed running website also

Never tried Kunena so I can't speak of it's pros and cons.

phpBB is essentially a separate site with separate database tables so unless you use a bridge, Joomla! and phpBB natively don't interact with each other.
