Main Question or Discussion Point

I will be applying to US uni grad schools for a Phd for the fall 2012 semester. I just took my general GRE and am not happy with my score-verbal 520 and quant 760. I will be taking the TOEFL this summer and the Physics GRE in November. Should i take the general GRE again?
The GRE is changing in august and i am wondering how that will affect.
Also is there a cutoff for GRE scores that uni"s apply when looking at applications?
PS: I am a MSc Physics student in India.

Most physics departments don't care in the least about the general GRE. Uusually, the graduate school requires it for all applicants, regardless of whether the department uses the score for anything.

Physics departments care much, much more about the Physics GRE. I would focus my studying on that test if I were you.
