Is there a reason for that board specifically?

I mean if you specifically want an Asus board, 30USD more gets you one of the following, and they don't require a bios update:
Prime X570-P
Prime B550 Plus

The cheapest thing that's in stock - at least in the US - is the Ryzen 3200G, and that's almost 90USD...
If you can spare that much more, you may as well get a B550 or X570... but perhaps there are circumstances?

it doesnt matter what brand i need something that really good in quality and around 150-300 price range and everything i fine is either overpriced due to the corona virus

Forget what I said earlier about the cheapest cpu - I derped up, big time. That's what I get for rushing.
The cheapest available is actually the Athlon 200GE.

X570
Asus Prime X570-P
Asus TUF Gaming X570-Plus, with or without WiFi

B550
Msi MAG B550 Tomahawk
Msi B550-A Pro
Gigabyte B550 Gaming X
Asus Prime B550-Plus
Gigabyte B550 Aorus Elite
Asus TUF Gaming B550-Plus
