Do i need a bigger power supply if I am going to put my GeForce 550ti dedicated to PhysX and my 660ti to just the graphic? I have a 700W supply now.

If it's a decent one, yes, 700W is more than enough for a 660 ti card(max tdp 170W) + 116W 550 ti as physX card

You're fine, that cpu doesn't draw much power.

Thanks! I appreciate it..I just didn't want to chance it if it would draw too much power and possibly ruin my new card.
