Need a motherboard to match current CPU

My computer has been randomly shutting itself off and after testing all the pins, ram, PSU, etc, I'm thinking the problem is the motherboard. It's a pentium i5-2400 3.1Ghz. Could someone recommend a low/medium priced motherboard so I could use the same CPU? Is there a possibility its the CPU and if so, could someone suggest a mobo that could also accomodate an i3? I will be buying a lower range CPU if that is the problem. Also, I'll be buying from
