I myself actually believe he is capable of defeating them both.
Back on the current subject, yes I believe Orochimaru to be a genius. However, he doesn't trump all the villians. I myself think that Itachi is a much better and more sinister villian. This is actually thanks in part to Orochimaru himself, since he defeated the third Hokage who was supposed to be the best, so you think he is the best. Then the episode RIGHT after he wins, he tells you Itachi is superior. So it makes you think "OMG Itachi is the best!"
Itachi is sinister, but not consistently... Like, I think he was at his peak in Sasuke's flashbacks of the massacre, and upon his introduction where he soundly beats Sasuke down and then using the MKS (and on Kakashi as well). However, in Part II, he really hasn't done anything cruel (that I can think of right now 8D). And is less interesting in a way because of it... o= But I guess Kishimoto is trying to focus on the other villians, like Pein and Madara. So yeah.
Orochimaru though, he's just got that presence down. xD Dunno, I never got bored with him. <3
