If you're not planning on doing any sanctioned event racing I'd advise going with the Hobbywing Xerun combo.
Steer clear of the Reventon, have a look in the Speed Passion thread to read about the issues that are plaguing the Reventon esc's.
I don't have any experience with Novak products so I really can't comment on them.

Cheers
Rob.

Novak is good but not the best

I've heard that one of the hobby wings is one of the best

Personally, I have not had a single issue with either of my Reventon Pro's since I got them in October. They're smooth, have great brakes (even in blinky), and don't have a gigantic footprint.
