Is this legit or just some personal info grabber website?

I didn't see anything on Nvidia's website about the settlement!

Nice, I have a 970M in my laptop. Doesn't say if that is accepted or not but worth a try

What do I need to prove eligibility?

When submitting a claim, you will be required to provide a verification code or proof of purchase. If you were sent a direct notice of the settlement, the verification code was included on the notice. If you were not, qualifying proofs of purchase include a sales receipt, a credit card receipt or statement, a shipping manifest, a purchase order, an e-mail confirmation, or other similar documentation reflecting a qualifying purchase and the retailer or Defendant you purchased the GPU from. Alternatively, you may submit a Product Identification Number, which is the product identification number, serial number, stock keeping unit ("SKU"), device identification number, part number, or other letters and/or digits embedded on the box, back, or bottom of each GPU that comprises its identification number, or that can be located by checking the settings for the GPU via software.

You can still try, but it will be rejected, this is explicitly for misadvertising the amount of available VRAM in the desktop GTX 970 since a small portion of it is not used.

I know that the lawsuit itself is real, when I contacted EVGA they told me to keep looking on NVIDIA's website, that's why I mentioned that I could not find anything there, but thanks!

"small" 12.5% of the total RAM is not small.
And it was usable memory, just slow.

Was hoping they'd replace with a 6gb 1060 Frown

30 is not much at all. How this dx12 thing is playing out they need to be sued again.

*facepalm*

The DX12 performance is in no ways grounds for a lawsuit.
