If it boots up from your USB drive to the DOS environment with a C:\ or A:\ prompt, to update you need to run the following command:

AFUDOS yourbios.ROM /P /B /N /REBOOT

Replace "yourbios" with the actual name of the rom file.

Just beware that most likely your I5-3570K still won't probably work.
I write AFUDOS p02a02m.ROM /p /b /n /reboot and it says error: Problem opening file fo reading.

I wrote AFUDOS P02-A0 2M than its starts to flash and it says rom file size does not match existing bios size
 
My system is Veriton X2610G

So only the P01.XX BIOS versions will work on your system... you currently have the P01-B0 BIOS version, so you'll be able to update only to the P01-B0 from their website(it's newer compared to what you have), but not the P02. XX versions.

Your system is only 2nd gen sandy bridge compatible unfortunately... you don't have a BIOS update to support 3rd gen ivy bridge.

In BIOS it says that my version is P01-B0 already, si i guess the one on the webiste won't work since i already have it.

It will, it's slightly newer,but... there's no point in updating it though.
You won't be able to install the i5-3570K, it's not compatible... stick with your I5-2320.
Alright, i have another question than. My i5-2320 cpu works pretty good with the games i play, but which Intel 2nd gen sandy bridge is the bst one for gaming?

The I7-2600 would be the best you can upgrade to on that motherboard... it has 4 more threads and higher clock speeds compared to your I5-2320.

Even though they only list I5s as compatible... here's someone running an I7-2600 on the Veriton X2160G with the same P01-B0 BIOS:

Now, if you're happy with the I5-2320 stick with it... you can save up and build a whole new system in the future.
