Any decent ram from the big manufacturers such as Corsair, OCZ, etc should serve you well just make sure it meets voltage requirements. That CPU does not have HT. The E8400 will perform similarly if the application is double threaded at most but in multi-threaded applications or games that support four threads the i5 will dominate.

This, besides you saying E8400 and the 2400 wouldn't really perform similarly. Sandy Bridge is a whole new architecture that is much more efficent then Wolfdale. With that said, any 2x2GB DDR3 kit would work with sandy bridge, try to find a good 2200Mhz kit as SB now supports it.

EDIT: Something like these will work nicely in a dual channel memory set up:

Here are a couple more kits that are a bit cheaper running at 2000 Mhz:

Corsair is a good company, everything I've owned from them is quality. Anyway there's a kit by A DATA and G.Skill in there too.
