sloboy89 offers good advice here. A vacuum leak caused the last incident of running poorly, and you have already replaced the spark plugs, so I'd say that your problem is more likely fuel than spark.

Sure, you could replace the wires, cap, rotor, points and condensor just because they're old. But it's just a shot in the dark that they are the cause your rough running problem.

but $200 as opposed to $50 for traditional ignition parts is a big difference
Why not just inspect the cap and rotor, and check the point gap before throwing parts at it? That will cost nothing.
