Ok complete noob question here..... I am currently set at 256k L2 Cache, uhm how do I bump it up to 512k? I gotta feeling that question is gonna make me look awfully dumb... Please help tho =)

dont feel dumb, "He who asks is only a fool for 5 mintues, he who does not ask is a fool forever"
as far as your question goes you cannot bump up the L2 cache because it is physical memory that is on your chip, you would have to purchase a new cpu that comes with 512L2 cache on board (like the northwood chips), it provides faster memory access and better performance. Welcome to the forums btw!
