Hello! I am building a new PC tomorrow and I'm not sure how to go about transferring my iPhone's backup to the new computer.

I don't care about music or videos on the phone, I can resync those. I just don't want to lose apps, texts, contacts, etc in the move. How should I go about doing this?

Thank you!

I believe texts and contacts are saved on your SIM card (or whatever the Sprint/Verizon alternative to SIM cards are).

Apps should transfer themselves automatically when you sync. To be safe though, you can set iTunes to not sync automatically first in the Preferences and then right click your iPhone to transfer them manually.
