I'm not sure how effective the caching is for the images on the page. There are lots of little images. The avatars, all the little buttons.

The text part of the messages is small compared to the size of the image files for the buttons and avatars that are loaded displayed and formatted for each page.

The biggest hit though is probably the initial server communication. There's database access that needs to go on and all that. The less you have to keep hitting the server (loading new pages) the better overall. Loading more posts per page means that you contact the server less but grab more data each time.
