The best non-Amazon Prime Day deals take the "holiday" created for members-only and make it a great shopping time for the rest of us, too. We’re only a few hours away from the Prime Day kick-off, and we’ve rounded up a bunch of solid deals for a Monday morning from all over the web. If you put them all together you’ve got one heck of an upgrade for your average gaming rig or home PC.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080

Newegg’s got the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1080 (GV-N1080WF3OC-8GD) for $460 after code 18FANST05, and if you do the mail-in rebate thing you can get $10 back, bringing the total cost to $450. This model of the GeForce GTX 1080 has three fans, 8GB of GDDR5X RAM, 2,560 CUDA cores, a base clock of 1,632MHz, and a boost to 1,797MHz. There’s also a non-gaming boost up to 1,657MHz. Ports include one DVI-D, one HDMI 2.0b, and three DisplayPort 1.4.

WD Blue 3D NAND

One of our favorite SSDs is available at a good price. The 500GB WD Blue 3D NAND 2.5-inch SSD is $95 at Newegg after the code 18FANST06. That's a nice $15 savings off Amazon's current price of $110.

Mechanical Keyboard

Amazon’s got at least one great deal for everyone today–even if you don’t have Prime. The Gigabyte Force K83 mechanical keyboard with Cherry MX Blue switches is $40–half off the usual $80. We haven’t reviewed this keyboard, but it has 4.5 out of 5 stars on Amazon from 116 reviews.

128GB low-profile thumb drive

To round out your new PC gear, Best Buy’s got a 128GB SanDisk low profile thumb drive for $25. This isn’t a huge drop in savings compared to Amazon’s current price of $31; however, this USB drive has been hovering closer to $38 before June so it’s actually quite a good deal.

That’s all the deals we have for now, but be sure to check back with PCWorld at 3PM Eastern/12PM Pacific Time when we’ll be posting the best deals we find during Amazon’s Prime Day.

[Today’s deals: Gigabyte GTX 1080 for $450 after MIR, WD Blue 3D SSD for $95, Gigabyte Force K83 for $40, and a SanDisk 128GB thumb drive for $25.]

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

Taylor Carr

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

Christopher Low

Brother RJ-4230B

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office 365/HP Spectre x360

Microsoft Office continues to make a student’s life that little bit easier by offering reliable, easy to use, time-saving functionality, while continuing to develop new features that further enhance what is already a formidable collection of applications

Michael Hargreaves

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Maryellen Rose George

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
