The form factor (basically the shape). mSATA is a mostly dead form factor that was primarily used in laptops.

So I should get the m.2 one?

Assuming its tis board: https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/B450-AORUS-PRO-WIFI-rev-10#kf

 

Then M.2 NVME is the way to go. That board apparently has both a x2 and x4 m.2 slot.

His board is a itx it's not that big

That doesn't mean he should waste money on an NVMe drive. There's no benefit as a boot drive. The 860 Evo M.2 is perfect.
