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
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.
you may also want to check out allen fly fishing.
they are are sponsors here and offer some great gear
