Attic fans (power ventilators) are normally sized based on the cubic feet of your attic. also you need proper ventilation i.e. soffit vents, gable vents, ridge vent. air in -air out.

Well, you're gonna have to pick one or the other.

There is a great variety of roof ventillators. Some electric, some solar, some wind driven. They are all available in various sizes, depending on how big your attic is. The wind driven ones are bigger, and in the opinion of some - ugly. The solar ones are most expensive, but don't require any electrical wiring. The electric hard wired ones may be the most popular and economical to install.
