.sitx means the file has been compressed with Stuffit. It's like ZIP only better. So you need to decompress it first. To decompress it use Stuffit Expander which is probably already on your machine. If not you can get it from versiontracker.com. Once unstuffed itll produce a .pkg. Double clicking the .pkg should start the installer which will take you through the installation process.
