Squid is quite commonly used for this purpose in front of "heavy" web
servers such as PHP.

See the no_cache directive, and optionally also the cache_dir null
directive for how to disable cache.

You may also want to increase the buffer size used by Squid. In Squid-2.5
and earlier this can only be changed by modifying READ_AHEAD_GAP in
defines.h. In Squid-3.0 and later this will be configurable from
squid.conf. Please note that this is in addition to the TCP windows.
