So I got this email yesterday and I figured i'd pass it along in case it affects anyone else here:
You Can Accept the Settlement. Class Members who wish to receive a Cash Payment must submit claims by November 30, 2016. You can access a Claim Form at www.gtx970settlement.com. Read the instructions carefully, fill out the form, and submit it online on or before November 30, 2016. Alternatively, you may also submit a Claim Form by mailing it to the following address: Nvidia GTX 970 Graphics Chip Settlement Administrator, P.O. Box 43431, Providence, RI 02940-3431. It must be postmarked no later than November 30, 2016. Claim Forms may also be e-mailed or faxed to [email protected] or 1-877-811-7556, and must be received by the Administrator no later than 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time onNovember 30, 2016 to be considered valid. If you fail to submit a timely Claim Form and do not exclude yourself from the settlement, then you will be bound by the settlement but will not receive a Cash Payment. If you stay in the Class, you will be legally bound by all orders and judgments of the Court, and you won’t be able to sue, or continue to sue, Defendants as part of any other lawsuit involving the same claims that are in this lawsuit.
You Can Object to the Settlement. You can ask the Court to deny approval by filing an objection with the Court. You can’t ask the Court to order a larger settlement; the Court can only approve or deny the settlement. If the Court denies approval no settlement payments will be sent out and the lawsuit will continue. If that is what you want to happen, you must object. You may hire your own lawyer to appear in Court for you if you wish; however, if you do, you will be responsible for paying that lawyer on your behalf.Objections to the proposed settlement will be considered by the Court only if such objections are filed in writing by November 8, 2016 with the Clerk of the Court at Clerk of the Court, United States District Court, Northern District of California, 1301 Clay Street, Suite 400S, Oakland, CA 94612.

You Can “Opt Out” of the Settlement. If you exclude yourself from the Class – which is sometimes called “opting out” of the Class – you won’t get a payment from the settlement but won’t be barred from asserting claims against Defendants. Such notice shall include your name, address, telephone number, Unit brand, approximate date of purchase, and a statement that you want to be excluded from the lawsuit In re NVIDIA GTX 970 Graphics Chip Litigation, Case No. 15-CV-00760-PJH.
