Both pretty much sound the same, different brand, best looking at reviews over those cards than opinions, though I've only heard of GeCube and they are good, you should check the reviews/tests out etc.

As for ATi cards, I prefer Nvidia as it's easier to get working in Linux.

Legend just rebrand Palit cards.
They're good - a bit light on the bundled extras though.

Go for the GeCube version, I see that the Legend one is the SE variety, SE varieties are known to perform below what is expected.
