The title says most of it, but can the gigabyte windforce run a triple monitor setup, 5760 x 1080p? If so, how? It doesn't have 3 of the same port.

Absolutely, you don't need three of the same outputs, just pick three of what it does have, plus, displayport can drive multiple monitors per output. If you need 3 HDMI or something, that's what adapters are for.

Ok, and just to clarify, the ports on the computer are "male" and the ports on the screen are "female"? I don't want to buy backwards adapters.

As said, it depends on what MONITORS you have.

Ideally you want a combination of DisplayPort and DVI, though if you don't have an HDMI input on the monitor, HDMI should work fine with an HDMI->DVI adapter or just use an HDMI->DVI cable.

If buying the monitors new, I suggest getting:
1xDVI, 1xDisplayPort, and 1xHDMI inputs.

Example:
Monitor#1: DVI
Monitor#2: DVI
Monitor#3: DisplayPort
