You can also use the following documents to help with some additional tuning.
Most of the links explains also when to use it because you will have different configurations depending on what you are actually using the webserver for.

Output Caching
Bit Rate Throttling
Native Output Caching (Video Walktrhough)

Key point is BPA only runs on Windows 2008 R2.

1. Try to keep your appliaction pools as AppPoolIdentity.

2. Ensure you Content is not in c:\inetpub
3. Create AppPool for each site to segragate application collision and crashes.
4. Only install the features you need. Don't install everything.
