is my PC good for gaming?
processer: core i5-3340 CPU @ 3.10 GHz
RAM: 4.00 GB
System type: 64-bit Operating System
and upgrading the ram to 6 or 8gb will make a big change?

GPU: 2GB that's it? Critical info either you do not know it to be so or the OEM is hiding it on the marketing specs to make it look good which means it is actually awful. If this is good enough even current games can go on such geriatric system.

your cpu is fine its 4 core and has a good sized cache and a good base freq. More ram wont help an individual game(unless it says it will or if you have the min amount of ram for the game to work in which case adding more would help) but more RAM is good for the OS. In almost all cases its the GPU that needs help. a 2GB GPU whatever it is will be poor for most modern games and only just enough for video editing. If you mean the Intel HD that comes with the cpu then thats a poor gaming gpu as it does not have dedicated RAM, it uses shared system RAM which is taken from your 4gb leaving the OS with very little. A 6GB GPU PCI-e 3.0 would be excellent and the chipset your system has will have 3.0 pci-e because thats what your cpu has..

It depends on what games. 8GB of RAM is almost a minimum nowadays, especially for as much multitasking that people tend to do. The video card would most likely be a bottleneck for certain games because the CPU is decent.

CPU ia probably the bare minumum these days, I'd recommend 8gb or wven 16gb of ram.
2gb GPU im guessing an older card, you didn't say what card it is, again probably the minimum but depending on card maybe usable.
For current ganes I'd say no, older games maybe depending on how old.

no, 4gb of ram will not do good, not even 8 will do good with today's games. You need a minimum on 16.

You didn't say what graphics card you have.. 2GB is extremely vague. However, a lot of modern games usually require 4 GB+ of VRAM. Also, most games recommend at least 8 GB of RAM, and a few require 16.
In short, your PC is most likely not good for gaming. You have an outdated CPU, too little RAM for the majority of modern games, an unknown graphics card which may or may not be good, etc.
Adding more RAM won't help too much. In gaming, the most important part is the graphics card (which we don't know what it is), and the CPU (outdated).

You never specified the RAM, GPU and storage.
