As far as I know reference designs can still unlock. But probably getting harder to buy one.

Newer revisions are supposed to stop this. I don't know if that has gone into affect, though. Just try to get one soon.

Alot of them are still unlockable as long as you get reference models. If you are afraid that it won't unlock you can always find one lurking on the forums.

These are both reference 2gb models and fairly cheap. only about 245 after rebate with free shipping

thanks heaps, will probably go for the MSI one, unless there is some sort of proof XFX and gigabyte unlock better

The majority of the 2GB cards are non-reference, if you are unsure grab the product code and check on the website of manufacturer or ask here. Non-reference cards also unlock however most people have the reference ones that is why they are more confirmations for them. Just get whichever is the best deal for you.
