I'd stick with OEM-equivalent rotors. I believe Centric makes the OEM ones; also Raybestos and some others make some nice rotors. I think it is worth a few extra dollars to get the nice "premium" coated ones, over the basic uncoated ones. There really isn't any reason to go with drilled or slotted rotors, unless you think they look cool.
Tire Rack and Rock Auto are two on-line sources for rotors and pads. Rock auto has real good selection and pricing, but beware they have a strict 30-day return policy, meaning no returns for any reason after 30 days. If you install them right away there is no issue; but if you let parts sit on the shelf for a while (like I do sometimes) you can get trapped by this.
There are lots of different pads available; to narrow it down you need to decide if performance is top priority, or dust / lack of dust, or noise . . . . track oriented pads tend to be very dusty and can be noisy, like the original Brembo pads.
