Default Asus. Why so many P965 boards?

Ok. This bugs me a bit. Asus have,
Asus P5B
Asus P5B-E
Asus P5B TELESKY
Asus P5B-E Plus
Asus P5B-Plus Vista Edition
Asus P5B Deluxe
Asus Commando i965
Asus P5B Premium Vista Edition

A bit excessive don't you think? I am getting a new rig by the end of the month and the choices here are just baffling.

If you are going P965 and not sli.

P5B Deluxe is the only one you need to know.

I'm happy with mine. No big issues encountered so far. Well except that 1t command rate doesn't jive and that's what it defaults to. SLI memory is a joke as well, but thats probably every board with it.

P35 is crossfire... No SLI.
