The K5000 Quadro apparently costs $2,249. Just the faintest bit scary, and you would only want to buy one if you really knew it was going to do you a lot of good. NVidia say -

"The Adobe Mercury Playback Engine in Adobe Premiere Pro leverages Quadro GPUs and the NVIDIA® CUDA® parallel-computing architecture to deliver up to 8x¹ faster performance for key features like Three-Way Color Corrector, Warp Stabilizer, and Uninterrupted Playback."

What it doesn't say is whether a GeForce card will do the same. Call me cynical, but I don't believe that they're creating two different architectures in parallel. A GTX 680 costs around £400 ($640) in the UK, and its the top of the range.
