In addition to the server suggestions at

Upgrade MySQL.

Make sure you have the latest Apache 2 - we also had problems with a particular version. (Don't remember which one.)

Check the # of queries running on your site (per page) ...

Check each custom query and make sure
1)__ they are optimized
2)__ are using index whenever possible
3)__ ensure that SELECTs are retrieving from the SLAVE server and not the MASTER (check processlist)

- only use necessary plugins - those that add value to your site
--- I recommend removing the arcade.
- vbseo has all their queries fetching from MASTER.
- vbadvanced - I'm sure there's some queries that are going to MASTER when they should be going to SLAVE.
