Ok Kids Beniboybling is busy doing about 3 of these threads so I figured I'd share some of the load with him and kick off the most powerful Starfighter.

These are snub fighters like the X-Wing, or TIE Fighter. No transports, capital ships, shuttles etc. only star fighters. Also if there are many variations EX: X-wing. T65a though Xj5 and up will be considered as 1 fighter. Now if there is a major branch off like the StealthX, or say the TIE interceptor, they will be treated as stand alone fighters.

1. X-Wing: I'm going to put this as number one. This is a given. Most iconic fighter in sci-fi. It's been there done that, bought the t-shirt and then some. This fighter is the benchmark.

2. TIE Defender
3. TIE Avenger
4. E-Wing
5. B-wing
6. K-Wing
7.
8.
9.
10.

TIE Avenger is number one to me, without a doubt, as an X-wing vs TIE Fighter veteran the Avenger class was without a doubt the best, it was faster, quicker, fastest rate of fire.

It was small and nimble with an armament to match any other starfighter and had one of the best starfighter hyperdrives as well as better shielding than any Imperial or Rebel starfighter.

Don't have to sell me on the Avenger. I did the dissertation of the TIE Avenger on the forums. Probably my favorite star fighter in the SW universe. However, I am not trying to be biased here. And most people probably consider the X-wing the best fighter. Now if it is proven wrong it isn't I will more than happily take the X-wing out of number 1.

Edit: Wait a sec, actually I change it. I'll pull for the Avenger for the #2 spot and ARC for #3.

Class 1.5 hyperdrives, can move incredibly fast in the atmosphere and in space, mounted laser cannons in both front and back, rugged and able to do independent operations.
Ok so right now two nominations for #2, ARC fighter and TIE Avenger.

Canonically though the Avenger was superior to the X-wing in all but one way, it wasn't as modifiable due to size difference and the X-wing therefore had a bigger and thus better hyperdrive, beyond that though, the Avenger makes the X-wing look as old as it really is.

A T-65A-C? sure. An XJ3 or better, not so much.
