    Don't get a 520 chipset motherboard which supports PCIe3 and put that 3060 which supports PCIe4. The term "bottleneck" is massively overused but here you've actually got a case of it.

    Get a motherboard with a 550 chipset, please.

    The A520M-HDV doesn't have BT or WIFI. You can add BT alone with a USB adapter.

    I would consider upgrading to a B550 as @magarity suggested, but more for future proofing. You're not going to encounter a bottleneck at PCIe 3.0 on an RTX 3060. W1zzard at TechPowerUp did a piece on this with 3080's and the results were within the margin of error. Going back a bit further running cards in SLI at x8/x8 you weren't seeing anything noticeable on anything less than Titan-Z's.

    Build looks good overall. I'd suggest upgrading the ram to the 3600 C16 kit. You're getting a performance increase from the infinity fabric clock. It's tied to your memory/uclk. So upgrading the RAM you're increasing the infinity fabric clock from 1600 to 1800. You can run it asynchronous but you take a latency hit that'll kill your overall real world performance. I believe you can get the 3600 C16 kit for about an extra $20. If it's in your budget I'd do that.
