Had the BSOD when playing The Witcher 2 yesterday, no problem playing before that. Had this BSOD ever since yesterday after about 10min of playing

Blamed on hardware I would do two things first.
1-Please remove any CD virtualization programs such as Daemon Tools and Alcohol 120%.
They use a driver
, found in your dmp,sptd.sys, that is notorious for causing BSODs.
Use this SPTD uninstaller DuplexSecure - Downloads
when you're done you can use this Freeware MagicISO Virtual CD/DVD-ROM(MagicDisc) in its place.
2- remove Macaffe and replace with Microsoft security essentials. How to uninstall or reinstall supported McAfee consumer products using the McAfee Consumer Products Removal tool (MCPR.exe) http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/
