Remember that if it takes you five years but you have a masters degree, you'll spend less time in your PhD so I don't think that should be a huge factor in your decision.

Why would I spend less time doing a PhD with a Masters? I didn't think that either coursework or research would transfer into a PhD program. Although, of course I would be much better prepared to undertake a PhD having completed a Masters.
