Do I need a new Mac?

I have a MacBook that I bought in 2006 (I think). I replaced the hard drive Feb. 2012 after getting the "blue screen of death."
In the past few months, it performs much more slowly and frequently seems to hang up after I use a command -- for example, opening an email or pasting an item. Sometimes when I am typing, it can't keep up and I get the circling pinwheel.
I am not working right now, and money is a big concern.
First I'd like to know if the advice would be to get a new Mac. Secondly, I'd be interested in finding how others sold their old ones -- Craigslist, a user group, general newspaper ad? What would be a potential price for this given that it's had one user who has treated it pretty darn well.
