Windows 8 requires at least 1024 x 768 screen resolution, if your monitor supports it, then you don't have a problem, your graphics card will run at that resolution(even 6 year old integrated graphics support huge resolutions).

The only graphic card requirement for windows 8 is directx 9 compatibility along with WDDM, and the 7450 has both.

Unfortunately, AMD website doesn't list it anymore so I cannot provide a reference page.

I don't see why not if there is a WDDM driver for it--the latest Catalyst 12.8 package does contain WDDM drivers for Windows 8. The Radeon HD 7450 can display full HD and beyond and has sufficient DirectX support, so I don't expect a problem.
