Perceived poor performance

I don't know if this actually IS poor performance - it just feels like it.
I'm running nginx and php-fpm on a VirtualBox virtual server. No other
services are running (other than the standard Ubuntu Precise minor items
for a server). The VM has four cores and 1G allocated.
Any time I connect to my server it seems to take 3 seconds before the
request is processed. I've seen some references via Google that
indicate this is TCP related - but I don't know where to look to find
The second item - which is probably meaningless until the 3 second delay
is resolved - is stress tests from an external server (I'm trying
http://loader.io) start dropping connections after about 30 simultaneous
connections. From what little I've gathered about nginx performance
this is absurd.
