Give us some time. The 7/8 will be fine if you are targeting bigger fish. The other would be good for trout and panfish, smallmouth etc. I'm not familiar with breem. The package looks solid although I really had never heard of them before i just googled them but a good starter at a "won't have to take a second mortgage" price. You could also check out Cabelas, I think they have a starter package also for a decent price. Good luck and this forum is a great place to post questions and successes.
Welcome to the sport and welcome to the forum!

welcome to the forum patrick:D
a 5/6 weight set up would work fine for what you're targeting.
i took a look at the wild water starter package and, although i've never heard of them, it looks decent.
