Msc and Mres are both master's degrees and will both allow you to progress onto a PhD. A masters in pretty much essential if you are planning on doing a social science, arts or humanities PhD, but less necessary in science.

If you provide a bit more information about what qualifications you already have and which area you are hoping to do a PhD in etc then people will be able to give you more relevant advice!

I tend to find the obscure site www.GOOGLE.com very useful for such questions. You should try it sometime.

An MRes is designed to be a training in research and research methods. In theory this should be more useful to you if you want to do a PhD. However each university department chooses whether to call a particular course an MRes or an MSc. In reality an MRes in one department may be very similar to an MSc in another.
