The Members Of the AMD Forums present the "AMD Forum Rig Of the Year". Each month through the year of 2010, we have seen many contenders for the best rig of that month. You the members have voted on each rig and we have determined the best for that month. Now for one final showdown we will put all of the winners of the monthly competitions together and we will see who comes out with the best rig of the year for 2010!!!

As this is my first Rig of the year thread, and the rules for this were not clear last year, in the interest of time I am going to forge ahead and try it this way. With your feedback we can improve on this for next year.

1.) Only The Rigs that won ROTM during the year of 2010 will be competing in this thread.

2.) Only the pictures Submitted to ROTM for the month that the Rig won in will be posted in the Rig of the Year Thread.

I will allow this thread to run until January 2nd, at which time I will call the Race. In the event of a tie for First or Runner up, the two Rigs will enter a Sudden death shoot out just like we do for the ROTM contenders.

First place will receive AMDFROTY Winner badge (Made by Canis-X) and I am donating a legitimate Free copy of Aliens VS Predators, that you will be able to download from Steam. I will PM the Winner a code that you will be able to use to DL the game using a free Steam Account.

Runner up will receive a AMDFROTY Runner up badge (Made by Canis-X)

Contenders for AMDFROTY will be listed in order of the Month

January: Jcocanour (aka JC)
February:N/A
March: N/A
April: X-tremedreamer
May: ridney
June: 383HEMI
July: Jcocanour (aka JC)
August: TravisFTW
September: N/A
October: Canis-X
November: PhilB
December: Marioland

So with no further ado here are the Rigs for AMD Forum Rig Of The Year 2010!!!
