First of all, compile apache with MPM worker and not prefork. (even if by default it should use worker).

Then, you should use a multicore machine, so that every concurrent connection gets elaborated by a dedicated core.
But there are other factors, like RAM, which have to hold all the databases referecend and all the web pages.
And don't forget the bandwidth.

You should provide more informations of your type of website, the usage statistics and the current system you own

Because prefork is fork based; it adds a lot of overhead due to the fact that it has to isntantiate another child apache2 process. Worker is thread based and, beside being lighter, on multicore cpus it really kicks.
Prefork is good just for stability purposes on old versions of PHP.

You can find directives explanations on apache webpage (http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/mod/worker.html)

Of course, caching gives a real boost to performances, when it comes to repetitive tasks that are similar/equal for all the users. But you still didn't tell me what's going this website do, how many users it's going to carry, etc..
