    I tried it all, wp super cache simply works, nothing better or worse than others, but I appreciate that plugin is no messing up with slideshows like some other plugins with same purpose.

    Of course, results always can be improved, so add this in .htaccess:

    Code:
    <FilesMatch ".(flv|gif|jpg|jpeg|png|ico|swf)$">
    Header set Cache-Control "max-age=2592000"
    </FilesMatch>
    
    <FilesMatch ".(js|css|pdf|txt)$">
    Header set Cache-Control "max-age=604800"
    </FilesMatch>
    
    <FilesMatch ".(html|htm)$">
    Header set Cache-Control "max-age=43200"
    </FilesMatch>
    
    <ifmodule mod_deflate.c>
    AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/text text/html text/plain text/xml text/css application/x-javascript application/javascript text/javascript
    </ifmodule>

    Feel free to check speed / results before and after placing this directives
