ESB Luke v. Vader. It has the drama and suspense without all the needless jumping and swinging that the prequels have (nothing against those fights though. They are still awesome) Great camera angles to show not only Vader's imposing stature, but power as well.
Oh and because it's really Vader's only "Win" in the whole series.
Not including the Phantom Menace:
Loses against Dooku (ok so he beats him later but at the beginning of the film? Come on!)
Loses against Obi-Wan (Later Obi-Wan sacrifices himself so no true victory there)
Wins against Luke (yeah I know. He didn't capture him.)
Loses to Luke (Luke shows that you don't need finesse or style, just hack away and you'll endure)

After reading these posts and watching the star wars 4-6 a couple times on Christmas Eve, I have to change to say the ESB Luke/Vader duel is my fave, and ROTJ Luke/Vader is second fave.
In ESB, I did see Luke holding his saber with 2 hands and Vader with 1. When Luke went to one hand for a second, Vader whipped the saber out of his hand. Very subtle touch, but ESB was good for subtle details that come out after many viewings.

No no no no. Best duel is Luke vs Vader in ESB.

Ep V Lord Vader v Luke. Simply epic
Ep III Yoda v Dooku
Yoda v Palpatine was cool too.

this is a great topic it really has me thinking through the lightsaber duels.
the prequel ones were definately hampered by the fact that we knew what was gonna happen 90% of the time.
but I still got mighty excited in the cinema when Yoda was kicking Palpatines ass all over the Senate building.evn though I knew Yoda had to lose this one his cool in handling the best Darth Sidious had to throw at him was excellent.

A New Hope. Vader Vs. Obi-Wan Kenobi, because it really has the most meaning and sets the tone of transition because it's the first light saber duel that shows us these duels ACTUALLY MEAN SOMETHING other than just looking cool.
We know from that battle that the next battles in ESB and ROTJ will have even greater consequence.

Dooku taking on Anakin and Obi Wan and eventually getting decapitated is definitely the biggest one in my memory. I can remember actually being slightly in shock in the theater opening night at the intensity of the film and opening with that scene.

Anakin versus Asajj Ventress in the original old school animation Clone Wars episodes get an honorable mention from me.
I liked how they did the fight in the temple with the water on the floor and the first time Anakin holds a red lightsaber had more impact than most of the actual live-action prequel moments.
