What are all the minimum graphical settings?
I seem to be experiencing some framerate drop during the most extreme parts of the game, I am just wondering if there is ANYTHING I can turn down at all. This pertains to more than just video options too, is there ANYTHING that will boost my framerate? Did turning gore to low help?

Yes turning gore down does help, even turning on low violence mode if you have to. Disable any Workshop Addons you have.

How do I turn on low violence mode, and how does it affect the gameplay? Because if it's just something like reducing the actions seen when a hunter pins you or something I'm cool with it, but not if it changes the gameplay. I will if I have to though.

put -lv in your launch options. It reduces the amount of blood spatter on your screen and it makes dead bodies disappear instantly

How do I put that in my launcher options? Is that a console thing?

And if so, how do you bring up console? I look in edit keys, etc. and I did not see that as a button.

Steam -> Library -> Right click on Left 4 Dead 2 -> Properties -> Set Launch Options -> add "-lv"

Ahh, thank you again.

What about disabling the steam overlay while in game? Seems like sometimes I would get updates about the steam community and that would cause some slowdown. Also, any chance if I get a mic hooked up to my computer if using it will cause slowdown? Didn't seem to cause any when you were using yours.

Having a mic involved shouldn't affect your game speed.

The Steam overlay potentially could, it just depends on the game and your rig. You can disable the overlay and experiment with it. Go to your Steam Settings page, and un-tick the "Enable Steam Community in-game" box under the In-Game tab.

The only downside is you can't do it on a game by game basis; disabling the overlay will disable it for all of your games, not just L4D2. It's not a huge issue though since it's an easy toggle.
