Well, I've just bought a graphic card ATI HD 6570 2 GB memory, But it didn't boost my gaming performance or quality, so I've decided to
buy a new mother board and CPU, what do you suggest me to buy?
( I can't buy a core i7 cpu cause it's expensive for me)

I am a gamer and I want to play games like GTA IV, Sims 3 with expansions, Blur, etc.
(my current system is: cpu Intel core 2 Duo, 5 GB available ram, Gigabyte p35 Motherboard and my gaming performance and quality is not satisfying.)

First off how much can you spend?Second that GPU is not very good for gaming nowadays so you might want to consider something better

I'm Not sure about the money, about $500 to $ 700, but I can pay more for a good system if it's necessary

That budget is more than enough for a good system.
I would suggest something like this:
CPU: i3 2100k with aftermarket cooler. Hyper 212 for instance
MB: Any motherboard that uses Z68 chipset. Take your pick on the brand
GPU: 6850 once again take your pick on the brand
PSU: Corsair TX550
RAM: 2x4GB DDR3 1333mhz. Get Corsair or Gskill if possible

Sorry that I didn't provide links. Internet is freaking slow today

I differ in my opinion from akxpckwb in what you should get. I think you should keep your graphic card and upgrade it only after upgrading the cpu, motherboard (MB), and RAM, only if the cpu/mb/ram upgrade by themselves aren't enough to satisfy you.

For the CPU I recommend the Intel Core i5-2500 Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 2000 BX80623I52500

For the MB, a good mid-range choice is GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-D3H LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

and for memory, a good inexpensive 8 GB set of ram would be G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL

Put it all together, and if you still don't get the performance you want, add an AMD based video card, model 6870 or higher to your system.
