I'm fiddlesticks.

My items: spectral wraith, zhonyas, sorc boots.

Enemy team is starting to build MR (lets say ~50 MR from items)

Would it beneficial to get a deathcap and have ~505 AP or get void staff and have ~330 AP with the 35% magic pen?

Depends how farmed you are when you back. If he have 1600 and haven't started either I say get large rod to death cap. Remember you get pen from passive too. If there is a lot of AP on both teams you could go abysmal scepter.

You'll do better with void staff against people building Negatron Cloak and upgrades, and better with rabadon's against people building no MR or only a null-magic mantle item (merc treads/athene's unholy grail). (Though in truth it also depends on their max health, since MR adds an effective 1% health, in reality you'll do better with a void staff against a health-stacking tank with only innate MR, and about equal against a squishy with just an un-upgraded negatron cloak.)
If -most- of your enemy team has a big MR item, I'd go void staff. If only the toplaner and tanky jungler do then, meh. Killing the squishy carries and assassins is more important.

Someone did the math already:

Article is a little bit dated, so take it with that grain of salt, but the general thoughts there are still true.
