Im planning to get Alienware M11x, so will it be good enough to run PCSX2? This is the one i plan to get:
Alienware M11x
Ultra mobile gaming laptop with Intel® Core™ i5 processor & bigger storage capacity for better performance!

PROCESSOR : Intel® Core™ i5-520UM Processor(1.06GHz, 4 Threads, turbo Boost up to 1.86GHz, 3M cache)]
Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit

So, how much FPS would i get on games like, say, Kingdom Hearts and FFXII?
playable speeds on KH, some slowdowns on FFXII
this cpu is kinda weak for pcsx2 and that mobile GPU won't help you.
well, theres an option for Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor SU7300 (1.3GHz/800MHz FSB/3M Cache), which one am i better off picking?
if you can push the 1st one to 1.86 ghz, then you'd better take this one.

in fact, you need mainly a dual core, clocked as highly as possible.
A dual core (core 2 duo, i5, i3, Turion 2 ultra etc) with clock speed of above 2.4 is recommended. The turbo doesn't work properly with PCSX2 as I read it in some other thread. I suggest you get some better laptop instead of M11X. Its no good for this emulator and certainly not good for Desktop gaming. At that price, you can easily get a laptop with core i5 450M (2.53 Ghz) and ATI 5650, which is great for PCSX2 and almost all desktop games.
