Honestly its not that much to rent a server if he plans on just having a few of his friends on to play with him, also for a guild a few bucks here and there can pick up the extra slots needed. All in all either mumble or vent are great services.

I used GSC back in my warhammer days, was a good program. I use Dolby Axon now, has some AWSOME surround sound quality. You get a big room that everyone sits in, can just move your little icon around the room, and depending where everyone else is from yours, you hear them from different speakers. Sounds awsome in my turtle beach headset

For most decision it comes down to what the guild you join is using.

If you are going to do you're own thing. Vent is most popular and thinner client as stated but you'll have to pay a small monthly sum to a hosting company. Skype you won't have to rent a hosting server but less people will be willing to use it because of the system demands.

Skype is a lot better if you're with close friends because of no PTT but other than that use vent

We use Mumble. Really nice program and it isn't a hog or a pita to use and adjust.
