Just to prove my point, here's a demo. FYI this is running on an old blade server ( E5440 with a current load average of 2 ) *in a VPS* running off it - 2 vCPUs, 1GB memory - so you're talking in the region of $10/mo for an equivalent commercial VPS.

The poor disks are a bit hammered too (:
( best run Time to First Byte: 179 ms )

As with all CMSes, you use the same principles to tune it. Monitor, address bottlenecks, rinse, repeat.

EDIT: FYI Magento no longer uses APC cache.

The worst one I've ever come across was running on a windows server, with a default WAMP install. Now someone really should have been shot for that...

As you're already running nginx, install php in php-fpm mode, and throw apache away completely. APC runs far, far better across php-fpm than it does with apache modules ( eAcellerator seems to be king over there ), and I find the resultant chain ( nginx -> php-fpm -> mysql ) far simpler to understand and tune. Once this is up and running, you'll need to start tuning up php resources ( high timeouts for admin services, plenty of mem again - 384 - 512MB per process ).

RE: Improving First Byte Time
First you need to identify the problem and since WP and forum run OK it is barely the hardware or server software.

Do this:

1. Download and install a fresh copy of Magento (the same version) on the server.
2. Compare its performance to the website - does it run faster?
3. I am 90% sure a clean copy will perform way better. If it does then you have either 3rd party extension or theme file slowing you down.
4. Disable extensions one by one to identify a performance hog and then try a different theme to see if it makes the difference.

Here I talk about it in details:
