Question Is the Asus Pro B550M-C/CSM good for gaming ?

The Asus Tuf lineup is relatively better quality. It is entry to mid level gaming board and should be able to handle that CPU fine. However, the b450 is an older chipset and might lack some of the b550 features like PCIe4. Not that you will loose much. Make sure you have the BIOS updated though.

i asked where i will buy and they said they can do the update if it doesnt come with it so its not a problem does new b550 features worth giving extra 130$ or should i go with asus tuf
 
if there is a real diffrence and the price diffrence is worth it im willing to spend extra but idk about the real diffrence
Depends on which board you choose. Specifications and features vary from board to board. On a similar board, you should have more RAM speed, maybe more connectors, maybe better audio, etc. If these things matter to you, then spend the extra for b550.

The gaming ability of a motherboard is mostly determined by the processor installed.
The 5600X is a quite good chip for gaming.
Three Newegg reviews liked the board:

That said, now may not be a good time to buy unless your need is urgent.
Intel and amd are due to launch next gen chips which will likely bring a 15% boost in price performance.

Sounds like you may have limited buying options.
As an alternative, a similarly priced I5-12400 will be a superior gamer.
You can use any LGA1700 based motherboard.
