Which of Nvidia Quadro 4000 and Gefore GTX 580 3GB DDR5 will be better for Premier Pro CS 5.5?

As far as I know the Quadra shines in applications like AutoCAD and similar 3D render software. Premier Pro is doing video editing and a Geforce is more than able to handle that.

Quadra cards are not intended to play games so their use is rather limited, require different drivers and they are not cheap.

Unless Premiere's specs/requirements specifically say it supports Quadro for acceleration and/or it lists *only* Quadra (and not Geforce), then the Geforce is likely to be the best bang for the buck. The Quadro line is mainly distinguished by their CAD-and-pro-3D-oriented drivers that prioritize stability, high geometry counts, and accelerate line antialiasing and other functions. These days most acceleration for non-3D apps (and an increasing number of 3D apps) is handled by GPGPU libraries like CUDA and OpenCL, both of which are supported equally well on Geforce and Quadro devices.
