Ok guys, I have done a couple of things so far.
First I have added some caching to the current Joomla site. Please let me know if this has improved your page loading times.
I have also separated the forums from being embedded in the Joomla site, which seems to have sped things up for me at least.
I also set up a drupal site at http://new.pbphud.com/
Please test it and let me know if it loads any faster. If it does I will probably port the site over to drupal completely, but I don't want to plop more resources into it if it isn't an improvement.
Please clear your Internet cache before doing these tests. I will also run some generic site tests as well and post the results. Time in your head each page load and let me know approx what each are, for the current site and forums and for the drupal site and forums.
Here's a little form you can fill out if you like.
