    You need to explain a bit more. All text links have anchor text. Whose forums do you want to link to? your own or those on another site?

    Benefit of anchor text is that this text is what google will associate with the destination url for the purposes of indexing

    Oh you mean if you go to an external forum and make a post and include a link to your site.

    Well it depends, if the forum puts a rel="nofollow" on any url's that are posted then no it won't help your serps or pagerank, though it might get some people to come and visit you.

    If they don't add the rel="nofollow" then you will get link juice.

    Most forums do not like people spamming or advertising though, so be careful to follow the rules of any forum you are in
