Torn between 2 motherboards: the GIGABYTE X570 AORUS ELITE and MSI MPG X570 GAMING PLUS

Hey everyone, a couple of days ago, my motherboard died, an Asus TUF gaming x570 PLUS, so I am currently trying to find a suitable replacement during the time I take to RMA the TUF MB once they lift the martial law, and so far I have narrowed it to the two MB's mentioned in the title, reason being, those are the two best available ones in my country in the price range that I can afford, I am leaning towards the MSI MB because of two reasons: one, it is cheaper, two I have had two previous MSI MB's and they have not failed throughout their life cycle with me, while I have had two Gigabytes out of which one has failed, and one of a friend of mine's failed as well, but the main reason why I listed the Gigabyte one is that it has Intel LAN instead of realtek, the price difference is around 30$. Here are the two products' pages:

Gigabyte: https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/X570-AORUS-ELITE-rev-10/sp#sp

MSI: https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/MPG-X570-GAMING-PLUS/Specification

The reviews are equally good on both of them so please let me know which you think is better and why.

MSI's lower end X570 boards have terrible VRMs. Depending on what CPU you are using, it may not make much difference. But if you have (or plan on upgrading to) a CPU with higher power draw, you're likely to see a negative impact on your performance.

I would personally go with the Gigabyte or another Asus TUF as they have much better VRM thermals.

A friend of mine has Ryzen 9 3900X and this motherboard and he is extremely happy with both https://pcpartpicker.com/product/dmGnTW/asus-tuf-gaming-x570-plus-wi-fi-atx-am4-motherboard-tuf-gaming-x570-plus-wi-fi
