I just bought the Witcher 2 Enhanced Edition and the configuration tool tells me I must run on the lowest settings. I started the game and discovered it is unplayable due to input and graphical lag. One thing I noticed is that the game configuration tool seems to think I only have 32 mb of RAM.

My PC runs Skyrim and other games with no trouble at all, here are my specs:

Operating System
MS Windows 7 Enterprise 32-bit SP1
AMD Athlon II X4 635 69 °F
Propus 45nm Technology
4.00 GB Single-Channel DDR3 @ 666MHz (9-9-9-24)
BIOSTAR Group TA790GXB3 (CPU 1) 79 °F
DELL E196FP (1280x1024@60Hz)
1024MB GeForce 9800 GT (PNY) 137 °F
Hard Drives
977GB Seagate ST31000528AS ATA Device (SATA) 76 °F
Optical Drives
ASUS DRW-24B1ST c ATA Device
Realtek High Definition Audio

Thanks in advance for any help!

I would say minimum is about right . Witcher 2 is one of the more graphics hungry games on the market. You might do ok by running a resolution of 1280 x 720. Is that card temp at idle? If it is then you might want to check for dust buildup inside your computer.
Thanks for noticing the GPU temp, I did need to clean it up! As for the system specs, the game is unplayable even at the lowest setting but I can play Skyrim on Very High Settings and it stays above 50 fps. I guess I should have checked the forums before spending my twelve bucks, but at least I didn't pay full price.

According to this
you should be able to get 35 fps @ 1280x1024

I would look into why your memory is running single channel.
Is it possible the 32mb of memory detected, is the dedicated memory of your onboard graphics card?

A 9800GT is pretty much on par with the minimum recommended GeForce 8800
