Check your fuel pressure and replace the fuel filter. Good first steps. If you give it 'gas' you're actually giving it air via the throttle-body, the gas is your fuel-pressure through the injectors via computer control. Low fuel pressure will cause stalling at idle and when giving gas. Since you mention you just got it, a full tune-up is warranted, and refill the tank with some known, good fuel (it may have sat for a while and if you're using up the dregs of what's in the tank it'll be mostly varnish).
