Question drywall screws......

Using 1/2" drywall. Should I get 1-1/4" or 1-5/8"? Thanks.

The difference in length is neglible. I'd use the 1-1/4" - less chance of wringing off the head.

Get coarse thread - not fine thread. The coarse thread will hold better in the studs. The fine thread screws are more suitable for going into other sheetrock or metal.
