What is crypto currency mining?

what are they using these video cards for?

The production of new currency(as a reward) for essentially validating transactions.

Like Sensei says, GPU's can be used to handle the processing.

Everything what computers do, is math.

GFX just have many cores. It's cheaper to buy one GFX card with 2048 cores, instead of 256 computers each with 8 cores CPU on board.
