Wow!... over 25 to choose from.

Is there any rhyme or reason to the names that would let one zero in on a
minimal (i.e. for somebody who just does Internet browsing, email, and MS
Office documents) board?


Most of those boards will be unavailable (obsolete).
Copy the board ID and start plugging into Google, NewEgg, Amazon, Ebay, etc.
It took me over a month of research and comparisons to settle on the Z270X-GAMING 7
in this machine.
