I am curious, just how important is the quantitative part of the general GRE? When I was interested in going to grad school in economics instead of math, the Quant sections was very important with top schools pretty much requiring a 169 or 170 for admissions. But for math we have the subject test. Obviously the math subject test is very important but is it also critical to get a high score on the quant GRE or will a good score on the math subject test be sufficient to make up for a lower quant score?

I am a top student at a small state school hoping to go to a top 20 school for my PhD in pure math.
