I just paired a RTX 3060 12GB with a Ryzen 5 3600x, 16GB RAM DDR4, and ran a 3DMark Time Spy test. My GPU scored 8,235 and my CPU 6,607. Will the GPU bottleneck the CPU or vice versa? Would it be worth it to get the Ryzen 7 3700x, or is this build okay, considering that I only play in 1080p at ultra settings with a 144hz monitor?
Thanks a lot!

Having different scores in the test for video card and CPU is perfectly normal. I would not bother changing the CPU, would be a waste of money for almost any game. Higher settings are refresh rate is almost all based on the video card speed once you reach a certain level of CPU, and the Ryzen 5 you have would be fine for games.
