All the strongest Jedi/Sith lived during the Clone wars/OT.
i could understand yoda but in terms of the sith i really dont think so, not to mention it's referenced that the old republic era sith were nothing compared to the original sith. Id think that exar kun/ajunta pall/naga sadow>palpatine

Then again this is all opnion.

Once again, according to cannon, Palpatine was the most powerful Sith ever. His talents, however, were of the subtle variety. He specialized in effecting the mind. Think of Bastille's Battle Meditation in KoToR (2? I get them confused) but in reverse, sowing fear and confusion. Remember what Yoda said about something clouding the force with the Dark Side so they couldn't see what was happening? That was Palpatine's work, solo.

Don't compare anything in the EU to anything in the movies in terms of scale(EU is anything thats official cannon, but not in the movies). If you want to compare Luke to Revan, or Vader to Malak, or Palpatine to the Sith Emperor, you need to make sure you are comparing the EU versions against each other.
hit the nail on the head here! people please stop comparing the power luke, vader and company had in the origianl trilogy which is over 30 years old now! lucas had no clue at the time of making the OT that his universe would become this living breathing thing with tons of writers, books, games, ect. its sooo stupid to sit here and say oh revan was more powerful than the movie vader and so forth. just think for a second lol

all the EU as awesome as it is, is all well after the movies, SW has evolved greatly overtime. If anything if you want to compare characters powers from the OT to EU characters than you have to delve into the EU and see how powerful Luke becomes and how many other powers vader has, but please stop comparing the crazy stuff reven or anyone else does in a darn videogame to the magic lucas made on screen 3 decades ago, its reallly a stupid argument i would see 6th graders having during recess!
