Diablo® III

Best way to increase damage?

So I'm in act 1 inferno, and still I don't know the best way to increase damage.
AFAIK, the things that affect damage are:

Critical Strike Chance
Critical Strike Damage
Weapon Damage
Attack Speed
Dexterity
Skills

Of these, you can increase:
Dexterity
Weapon Damage
Attack Speed
Critical Strike Chance
Critical Strike Damage

My question is, which one or which few should I focus on increasing to dish out the most damage? I know that if getting everything up would be ideal, but its expensive as well.
Thanks for reading =D

higher weapon damage seems to increase it the most (going from a 400 damage crossbow to a 650 damage bow increased my damage by 4k) but after that i would say dex/attack speed

im still on act 1 inferno as well, having a hell of time trying to solo elite mobs

I did some napkin math back in the low 40s and found that 1% attack speed was roughly equivalent to 5 dex. Can't log in right now to verify this.
