If you’re looking to get a jump on holiday shopping for the gamer in your life, Amazon’s October Prime Day is Oct. 11 and Oct. 12. Prime Members have access to early Black Friday-level deals and sales on everything from controllers and games to accessories like headsets and storage devices.

And if you don’t want to shop on Amazon, other retailers like Walmart and Target as well as big brands like Samsung and Acer are running their own sales. You can save up to $1,700 on gaming desktops, laptops, and monitors, so you can upgrade your battle station or gaming rig for less. Keep reading below for the best deals we’ve found.
