Erm, while he did fight the first and second Hokages, and Orochimaru, it was basically a fight to survive. It was his Death God jutsu which took care of the first two Hokages, and Orochimaru's arms. He didn't take it out Orochimaru. In his prime, he was known as God of Shinobi, while the Fourth was known as the best ninja Konoha ever produced. So, it's either go by what you're told, or go by what we've seen. We've seen Sarutobi do more than the Fourth. So, I guess he was the best.
