You'll need a lot more than a good score on the physics GRE to get admissions to a physics PhD program. Here's a thought... try going to a few program's websites and looking at what they require or recommend for their applicants?

Going to department websites? Actually doing a little bit of reasearch? Looking at the 9000 other threads on the subject? No way, that would be too reasonable.
