Well with the SSD you put your OS and games and other high priority programs, and put data i.e. music etc. on your HDD. They're both not necessary, but just the typical thing a person does when they build a comp w/ an SSD.

And heatsink wise, do you plan to OC at all?

Well OS means operating system i.e. Windows 7, Windows Vista, etc. SSD means Solid State Disk. It is much faster than a HDD so you will get more performance by putting your OS and games on there. And yes this comp should be really fast

I say get the Cooler Master HAF 932. Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER HAF 932 RC-932-KKN1-GP Black Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case - Computer Cases

The Zalman heatsink is a piece of crap. If you must buy from Newegg then get the Core Contact Nubbleet 1st suggested.
Newegg.com - Sunbeam CR-CCTF 120 mm Core-Contact Freezer CPU Cooler W/TX-2 - CPU Fans & Heatsinks
It requires a updated retention bracket to work with the LGA1366 socket.
Newegg.com - Sunbeam CR-LGA1366 LGA 1366 Core I7 Socket Retention Bracket Set - CPU Fans & Heatsinks

Or you can order this heatsink from Newegg, it's the Best they carry for a i7 920 based system.
Newegg.com - Noctua NH-U12P SE1366 120mm SSO CPU Cooler - CPU Fans & Heatsinks

The GTX295 is a waste of money, buy a ATI 5870.

You don't need the 750GB HDD. But is 120GB enough space for all of your stuff? That's why I suggested you get it. And yes that is the SSD I would recommend. And yes Windows 7 is a good choice.

Edit: Yes, I would get the HD 5870 over the GTX295, since it's newer generation.

No problem . Here, get this HDD instead of the 750GB. It's just as fast, and will go great along side your SSD.

Newegg.com - Western Digital Caviar Black WD5001AALS 500GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb&#47;s 3.5&#34; Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
