Personally I would choose 3.2.9 solely for the reason that all the extensions I need are validated and work with phpBB 3.2.9. phpBB 3.3 breaks at least one due to viewtopic.php?f=661&t=2536701#incompatible_extension

Once the extensions I'm using are officially validated for phpBB 3.3, then I'll upgrade so that I can also take advantage of a more current PHP version and the performance gains that come with it.

My $0.02.

if it is new I would definitely go for the latest version which is 3.3.0
most 3.2 extensions work with it now and those that don't will probably get updated soon.

and, 3.2 will hit end of life soon so why bother with it for a new board.

many people run phpbb just fine with no extensions at all so only install those that you actually need, when you actually need them.

I'm baaaaaccckkkk. still doing work on donation basis. PM your needs.
