Apparently people have managed to install newer versions of the OS on Macs that aren't officially supported, so it may be worth looking into that.
Yeah I mentionned it in my post, here a link : http://forums.macrum...45#post14341245
But my model isn't yet supported and it's a real hack as I quoted it.

Its how times go. The computer and software industry is an ever changing and evolving beast. One can not expect to stay with the exact same hardware/os forever and expect the future to cater to the ancient and out dated.
About this specific point the problem is before it was pointless to continue use a 7 year old computer. But that's been a rather special series of generation, this computer started when not many applications/games was supporting well multi core and multi processor. Then first years it grown in power which is rather unique, ie the 2*2 3Ghz was a lot 1x 3Ghz at first, then became 2x 3Ghz an when compiler and all applications started get a full support of multi core and multi processsor it became a 4x 3Ghz. And when I updated its graphic card it was like buy a new model with a CPU outmatching a lot too much the old graphic card. There's many games that now run a lot faster than what they did when I played them first and it's the same computer.
The problem is all the trouble is coming from a very weird architecture based on a 64bit which isn't a true 64bit. And it wasn't clear at all. That's the only reason I started have toubles with this computer and Windows 7 and later OS and with Mountain Lion and future OS. The most irritating is an iMac crap as old (but probably a later model) is still fully supported.
