GeForce GT 740M Review
GeForce GT 740M is a middle-class mobile graphics card based on the 28nm, Kepler architecture.
It's based on the Kepler GK107 Core and offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 32 TMUs and 16 ROPs, on a 128-bit memory interface of DDR3. The central unit runs at 810MHz (890MHz in Turbo Mode) and the memory clock operates at up to 900MHz.
Its performance is therefore similar (though slower) to the DDR3 Variant of previous GeForce GT 650M and so most modern games will run at medium or high settings. Its power consumption should be lower, thanks to the power optimizations.
This Graphics Card needs to be paired with an average Quad Core CPU and can only achieve fluent frame rates at 1366x768.

My computer comes with the 740M with 4GB dedicated, does it change much the performance or it's just like the 2GB version ?

You can. Very good match. However, if you have a little bit of more money you can also go for the GT 750M.

That is not true. there are both GT 740M and GT 750M for notebook.
You might be confused with the GTX 750 which is available on PC.

How long until the 740M isn't usable any more, do you think? I'm still able to play new games on low-medium settings, sometimes with high elements.

if you overclock it with "msi afterburner" you should be able to play game atleast for 3 years but don't overclock it too much or you will lose your performance and also risk damaging your pc :D

No that processor is not good enough for last games. Go for a i5 3250m or a i7 3537U, both are good with that graphic card. And if you can use 8Gb Ram.
Hope i'm helping

What do you mean by "go", can you change processor on laptops?
At least on mine, ASUS k56C, it's not possible.
