Why only costly GPUs are used for Bitcoin mining and why a graphic card is considered to be the primary factor in Bitcoin mining?

GPUs have much more processing power and can perform a large number of calculations in short instance as compared to CPU; which may take months to perform the same task. To answer the second part of your question, Graphic cards used to be important but they are not anymore as they have already been surpassed by ASICs which have revolutionized the entire mining process.
