This is my first PC build, could you please double check to make sure I didn't make any beginners mistakes or I'm not overpaying for something I dont need. I'm a pretty casual gamer, I want my games to run fast at decent quality. Thanks. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/sFKYCb

Yeah, some mistakes there.

You need Windows 10 for one, Windows 7 won't work with the newer gen CPU's and it's near end of life anyway.

The SSD you picked is both crap and too small. Need at least a 250GB SSD like a Samsung 860 EVO.

Other than that it looks OK.

I would however recommend going with an i5 8400 instead of the i3 for gaming.
 
Made a few adjustments here for you to look at, not sure why you need that backup plus 4TB thing. I think you would be better off removing that and the standard HD and getting another SSD like the Samsung 1TB 860 EVO. And get a Sandisk 256GB USB flash drive for backup for the main drive.
