I am building my first own gaming pc, and i'm wondering which of these two is better (regardless of price difference, lets just say they both cost the same):

ASUS TUF Gaming B550-Plus Wifi AMD AM4 ATX
GIGABYTE B550I AORUS PRO AX Wifi Mini ITX B550

I'm not really familiar with the technicals of it, so if you don't mind please dumb it down for me, the advantages and disadvantages, why you would choose one over the other. Thanks!
 
They have similar features.
The Gibabyte one has higher ram frequency support, but you will never in your life use 5100MHz so its completely useless.
Both have WiFi 6.
Both support 2x M.2 SSD's, both are PCIe 4.0 (i believe).
The Gigabyte one has PCIe 4.0 on the x16 GPU slot, but between PCIe 4.0 and PCIe 3.0 there is little to no difference currently, so again, a bit of a useless feature imo.
If you have a ATX case, i would go for the ASUS one for sure.
It has 4 ram slots, more connectivity options, and overall a nicer design.
