Tuning for performance is not an on/off switch that you can flick.  It
depends entirely on your load characteristics and the hardware you have
available to serve it.

An httpd.conf designed for high performance is distributed with apache in
the conf/ directory, but it really just turns off a bunch of features.  A
bunch of performance tuning advice is also available here:

But, as it seems you've already guessed, it is very likely that the
performance characteristics of your dynamic pages will overwhelm any
performance effects of the underlying server.
