Think you have a contender for Rig of the Month at Maximum PC?

Well do ya?

Send a 300 word write up and high resolution images (I suggest at least 4) to:

rig at maximumpc.com (you know the "at" drill - no spaces)

The write up must be in english. If you are ESL, using a BabbleFish, or just want help, I suggest you post your writeup in the forum for member editing before you send it off. Members can help you "tweak it up".

(Because I write the Mod_Blog, I can't help you much other than maybe spelling).

The prizes change often, but are typically worth $500!

Where does the 300 word essay go? All I ever see is 3-4 sentances in the mag about the monthly rig.

Basically, they use it to make the write up. Maybe pull a quote or three from it.

In the mag it says "one entry per household". Does that mean that I can only enter one of my mods? I have several to enter, and I plan on doing many more (better) mods, so should I wait and only enter the best one?

You can submit a dozen if you like, but only one can get accepted. When you do make it in the mag, you cannot enter for another 6 mos or so.

has anyone here ever shopped at ewiz.com? im thinking about submitting my case but would rather wait for the website to change. maybe www.performance-pcs.com would be better? www.frozencpu.com? www.xoxide.com? those are probably the 3 best modding supply stores in the USA

Yup. Fine prices, excellent support. They'll check things by hand if they need to.

Cases can be had probably cheaper than most at SunDialMicro.com, also great service.

The first post in this tread tells you how, or it is also in Maximum PC issues on the last page of the mag.
