Sapphire Radeon HD5450 Video Card--Incompatible with Windows 7

Originally posted 12/18/11 Revised and re-posted 7/4/12. After innumerable display driver has stopped responding” messages and waiting for my screen to come back up I have given up on this video card.   I have tried every solution I was able to find on the web.   NONE of them have worked.   I pulled the card and have not found any issues since I uninstalled the drivers and removed the card. 
I can NOT recommend this card for use with Windows 7.    

First off, if you are a gamer I did not test this with any games. I got it to keep my on board video card from grabbing RAM from my base memory. That feature seems to work just fine. This is a very good video card for the price. The onboard 1gb off DDR3 memory just astounds me. Keep in mind that my computer roots go back to computers that had 64k of memory, let alone video cards with 1gb of RAM.

It does include the low profile bracket.
