They are all part of the RAR spanned archive - you need all of them - with the annoying exception of the .sfv file which is simply a checksum that all the files are OK. Don't forget this is a 1080i HD mediafile so expect it to be several GB.
 
You've been here before though - this question of yours about a 720p MKV file shows just the same file structure...

The nfo file isn't required either to restore the archive.  It is useful, like some consider the sfv file, but not really required.  Neither download is worth noting though so you might as well get them too.  The extra seconds won't matter after how long you wait for the rest to download. :)
