ASRock Taichi x399 or Gigabyte x399 AORUS Xtreme E-ATX?

I was just going to buy the ASRock Taichi x399 motherboard when I notice the new Gigabyte x399 AORUS Xtreme E-ATX motherboard. Which would be better to get? I'm building a machine to work mostly with virtual machines using VMWare Workstation. Is it worth the around $110 difference?

PS: I know the taich has a virtualization option in the BIOS, but I'm not sure in the Gigabyte. PS2: The case I have support eatx mobo?

Thanks,

The board choice won't really matter at all unless you A) need the extra features of one board over another or B) are doing high to extreme OCing. Virtualization in the BIOS should be for a type one hypervisor, it shouldn't really impact VMWare at all. I don't know what case you have.
