Calculator result

Intel Core i9-12900K and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 will work great together on 1280 × 800 pixels screen resolution for General Tasks.

This configuration has 1.4% of graphic card bottleneck . Everything less than 5% should not be concerned major bottleneck.

Component utilizations

While running general tasks, processor Intel Core i9-12900K will be utilized 98.6% and graphic card NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 will be utilized 100.0% .

Graphic card bottleneck is better, than processor bottleneck, because utilization of your graphic card will be on maximum and you will experience maximal performances that your graphic card offers. Also your processor can handle some other programs in background because it won't be maximally utilized.

Solutions

You can resolve this by upgrading your graphic card or by downgrading your processor. Downgrading your processor doesn't make much sense and in that case is better to leave current processor in you computer, because you can run more background task that won't interupt your gaming experience.
