Going along in chapter 3, probably nearing the end at this point. I have run into some serious performance issues with the game, though. It regularly dips below 20 frames per second in Vizima's Trade Quarter, which I swear is worse than on my old video card. I need to try a few things, but it is irritating to think that I might have to make the game look worse than it did on my old card in order to make it run as well. Still, a poor framerate doesn't stop the game from being great. I came across one of the key decision points for the chapter, and while I could not stay neutral in this instance (I sided with the Scoia'tael on my first playthrough and am attempting a neutral playthrough this time), I do get to see some the consequences of siding with the Order for the time being. One thing I've noticed about the Witcher is that none of the consequences of the decisions you make are immediately apparent. You may think that you have made the right choice, but consequences much later in the game may leave you questioning your decision. I like this, since it discourages reloading to make the "right" choice, and thus produces a more organic experience where the player has made both good and bad choices throughout the game.
