As far as I can tell, you are right, there is no support for Windows 7 and this card. The card is AGP 8X, which is older technology and I don't know if you can find a AGP card that is going to be compatable with Windows 7. You could try something like this, which is windows 7 compatable: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812225007
You could try using the driver for the FX5200 directly from Nvidia. Maybe the MSI drivers are causing the issue. If not try using the video card in another computer and see if it works. Without testing the card or the board it is hard to say. Sometimes a weak powersupply can cause problems like this. Also make sure if there is a power connection to the video card that it is hooked up. Some video cards need additional power plug hooked up.
Ok so i'm going to probably get flamed for my suggestion here, but bear with me.
Take out the new fx5200 video graphics card and reboot the computer. If the freezing stops, then the card itself is most likely faulty or incompatable with your particular PC, or may also simply have a fault in it.
Computers that ran fine before a new piece of hardware/software was installed, can nearly always be blamed on the new device or program. Simple solution is to remove the last thing you added and work backwards from there.
If the freezing still happens, i suggest that you could also have a faulty ram stick, and you can test these with a RAM testing program, but they don't always show errors the first time you run them, so it may take several test runs to show the problem.
An easy solution ( if you think you may have a faulty ram stick or Dimm slot, you can try removing the stick/s from the Dimm slots 1 by 1 until the problem stops, this can mean you have either a bad slot or bad ram stick, either way you should be able to work out what the problem is fairly easily.
The only other problem i know of that causes long freezes or pauses, is not enough ram - or what is called missmatched ram.
You could try with reinstalling the drivers for the graphic card. Another problem could be that you don't have all the codecs needed (But it doesn't usually freeze windows, only the software). Try downloading a codec pack from the following site:
