finished attic ventilation in 1 1/2 story

recently finshed the attic in my 1 1/2 story and its the time of the year when the sun beats on the south exposure and creates a very hot and humid room question is what is the best way to add vents to the finished attic, do power exhaust work or should i increase the gable vents in the part that are very hot also are there any power vents that can be mounted horizontal

I'm not a big fan of PAV's. I think they do more harm than good because they can pull the conditioned air from the house. IMHO, the best way to vent an attic is with a passive vent system like ridge vents. You might also look into installing a radiant barrier in the attic.
