I have a sql server 2005 database that is constant 100% buffer cache hit rate, 94% plus memory usage and 80% plus on the procedure cache. Would the best solution be to try and add memory?

Buffer cache hit rate should be as high as possible, indicates how much sql finds its pages in cache so need for disk-read. 100% can't be beaten.
