They seem very similar, both having:

• mATX
• 2x USB3
• 2x SATA3
• 4x SATA2
• Realtek ALC892

The differences seem to be:

Asrock H77m (£59)

• 6x USB2
• 1 x PCI Express 3.0 x16 slot (PCIE1: x16 mode)
• 1 x PCI Express 2.0 x16 slot (PCIE2: x4 mode)
• 2 x PCI slots

Asrock H77 Pro4-M (£62)

• 4x USB2
• 1 x PCI Express 3.0 x16 slot (PCIE1: x16 mode)
• 2 x PCI Express 2.0 x16 slots (PCIE3: x1 mode; PCIE4: x4 mode)
• 1 x PCI Express 2.0 x1 slot
• 1 x eSATA3

I doubt I'll be using CrossFireX, so I may as well go for the cheaper one and gain the 2x extra USB2 ports, yep?

Also assuming you aren't using the eStat, then go for the cheaper one

You forgot something, the h77m has two dimm slots, the h77 pro4-m has four dimm slots, it has also more two SATA III ports by asmedia(4 SATA III/ 4 SATA II), i would get the h77 pro4-m because it has more features for just 3£.
Unless you don't need those at all.
