How would you decide the best route to go with your site between putting up affiliate links to merchants or adding a google adsense of say, 5 adverts and letting google pay you per click?

Often, both is the best. Do a split test. Try just affiliate links, just AdSense, and both and see which produces the best total income.

Depends on the type of site and traffic you have. I run both.

It's a risk-reward question, really. You will probably generate revenue more frequently with AdSense, but for merchants that convert well and pay bigger chunks (meaning a good percentage on a high ticket item), you might be better off running the aff links.
I'd say it all depends on what you're peddling, and how saturated the market for your item is.

I had one page last Christmas that was doing really well for sales, so I put up an AdSense unit for a couple of days. AdSense went up 10 fold, affiliate sales halved. The drop was greater than the AdSense rise so I lost the unit pretty quick. I tend to have affiliate sales pages OR AdSense on content pages, it's rare that I'll have both (though on one site I have they are both on most pages). The only way to find out is by trial and error and make sure you pay attention to what's happening!
