I currently have APC installed and it's caching the pages correctly. I
did experiment with the nginx memcached module where nginx would
simply bypass the php altogther, this massively improved performance
to the sound of 1,200 req/s, but it's not easy to implement into my
current web application.

I'm quite new to nginx so I've attached my configs incase I've missed something.
