I know my pc is old and it's not the best, but i dont have a money for new one and i want to buy new ps or xbox, so i dont want to spend much money on pc... i just want to play normaly games, they can be on low.. i play warZ a lot but i cant have it on 1920*1080 resolution.. and when i play other games on 1920*1080res, it's very laggy, so i need to play them on 1280*720 but then the graphic sux..

I'm sure your GPU is your bottleneck for this system, so get a new GPU. Definitely not a high-end video card where the cpu will bottleneck, maybe something mid level, saw a few other older posts on here saying a 4870/4890 was a good match. Something similar for this generation of cards could be something similar to the ~HD7770 or you can step it up a bit and go with HD7850. Keep in mind that if you get a higher powered GPU, you may also need to get a new power supply that can support it.
