Sounds like a case where Prefork is a poor choice of MPM.  I'd expect
to see much better performance figures from Worker or Event.

I expect you could usefully reduce the number of modules loaded, too.

Apart from a more appropriate MPM, google for ApacheCon presentations
from Colm MacCarthaigh and Brian Akins, both of whom have run Apache
with very much higher loads than yours.
