Even though others have said otherwise, I've had good results from setting
sort_mem higher -- even if that is per query.

In my experience, the largest performance increases come from intensive
analysis and optimisation of queries. Look at the output of EXPLAIN
ANALYZE for the queries your application is generating and see if they can
be tuned in anyway. More often than not, they can.

Feel free to ask for assistence on irc at irc.freenode.net #postgresql.
People there help optimise queries all day ;-).
