No, they're slightly different in terms of internals.
The CX550 is a little better in terms of quality, with the 550M being semi-modular.

Of the two options, all else being equal, I'd opt for the CX550

That being said, if you're looking to purchase a PSU.... What hardware are you using? What kind of budget do you have? and where are you located? Corsair offerings have good worldwide availability, but there's frequently better units for similar money, or similar units for less money in a lot of areas.

I3 10100
Gigabyte b460m ds3h
Msi gtx 1650 super gaming x
Apacer 8x2 2666mhz

Can still be ordered direct from Corsair, so doubtful it's discontinued at all.
May simply be unavailable in some markets due to current conditions.

Agreed with @King_V , a good 450W unit would be plenty. 550W wouldn't hurt.

$100 USD is roughly 1.4m Rupiah?

Looks like the CX550M is one of the cheaper options at <1.2m

There's a better quality LeadexIII, but looks like it's marginally over budget at 1.48m
https://www.rakitan.com/product-detail.html?kode=SFPSUATX012X

I'd be more inclined to opt for the SeaSonic COREGM500W for 1.15m:

Or the FOCUS GM-650, still (marginally) under budget:
https://www.enterkomputer.com/detail/164457/Seasonic-Focus-Gold-GM-650-650W-Semi-Modular-80-Gold-Certified-7-Years-Warranty-Replacement

The FOCUS should allow for pretty much any upgrade you want to do & run fanless most (or all) of the time with the hardware you have.

Excuse me sir, now i found market place sell cx550($67,81) and cx550m($83,53), which one do you think I better take?
 
You are right to think of quality first.
A power supply should be considered as a long term investment.
They do not go obsolete easily.
Your i3-10100 processor is a stronger gamer than most would think.
It can easily run a much stronger graphics card than your GTX1650 super.
Here is a review of the i3-10100 for gaming:

My point is that one should overprovision a initial psu to allow for future upgrades.
A psu will only consume the power demanded of it, regardless of the max capability.
A top quality psu will have a 7 to 10 year warranty. Look for one.
Of the list from BARTY1884 I like the focus 650w best.
Often there is a minimal difference in price going from 650w to 750w. Look for that.
