Recommend a host?

Looking for a good dependable host for a PHPBB based forum and website with moderate traffic (200 or so members).

We have a lot of pictures posted, and a few videos.

Can anyone recommend an affordable host?

Right now we are with GoDaddy and they SUCK. Anything hosted on the SQL servers is slow as hell. The rest is ok....


BTW, if anyone could recommend a 'fix' for our current problem, that would be helpful also. I'm not very computer savy, but I do read directions well. Here is the website:

The Forums are the only thing that is slow - especially when replying or posting.

Thanks in advance.

Dreamhost is cheap and not bad, but for running a forum it would be kinda bad as they have separate MySQL server which means that all traffic has to be routed via the network to get to you
