System memory and dedicated system memory is completely separate.

If the rest of your system is good enough then its fine.

What are the rest of your specs?

ESPECIALLY your power supply?

yeah the GS600 is a good choice. Then you are a for away. :) 

Keep in mind your CPU will bottleneck the GTX660 a little.

Is it going to make crashes or is it going to overclock or burn out or something like that?

Nope nothing like that, you will just miss out on some of the full performance potential of the GTX660.
