direct bury wire from house to garage??? help

There is no difference
The fact that some people choose to ignore the National Electric Code (NEC) & risk a fire, or possible eletrocution should be a crime

With voltage drop you are down to about 50a at full voltage
If you never pull over 50a 240v you won't have a problem
If you have a motor or something else that does not like voltage drop you will probably have a problem
