If you have functioning soffit and gable vents then ridgevent alone will satisfy your venting needs.IMO turbines are salvage and are not worth the cost.

They are an eye sore and make alot of noise and allow precipitation and critters in your attic.

They are almost universally incorrect. Passive ventilation is always more preferable.
