Although Epica has the hottest singer of the three, Symphony X is my favourite. 

As far as power metal goes, however, I'm more of a Blind Guardian guy.

What!? Russell Allen is damn hot!

My vote goes for Symphony X.
To the surprise of no one LOL

Since I think Symph X is prog metal, I agree with Colin that Blind Guardian is my favorite power metal band.

Epica, but only just ahead of Symphony X.
Spending more than I should on Prog since 2005

Kamelot by miles and miles. Or at least they were better than the others when they had Roy Khan.

Symphony X!
Mikael Akerfeldt for fans of Opeth who don't like his growls (and generally the growls): If they don't like it then they are pussies.

Extreme prog metal rules!!!

SX >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> The other two

Also they're not power metal - Neo Classical Metal: yes, Progressive Metal: Yes, even speed metal occasionally, but not power metal...

I would like to vote for Epica, which I have many songs that I enjoy a lot... though I'm afraid I don't like grunting... however, they have enough non grunting songs that I love to say that I like the band. On the other hand, I know little Symphony X, however they didn't do much for me and don't really feel like exploring them much more... at least not for the moment. Still, I don't know any Kamelot, so I guess it wouldn't be fair for me to vote here.
