Are you running other services on the same machine?  It's generally best
not to do this.

You might want to try switching to Apache worker MPM (threaded) and
disable any extensions that are unused (especially anything like PHP) to
reduce resource usage.  You might also want to try a different web
server like nginx or lighttpd.  For apache, something like mod_bw might
help you to reduce bandwidth usage which could translate to lower load

Alternatively, try faster disks, more RAM and faster CPU.... :)
