So..... only replace it with 5/8" if 1/2" on 24" o.c. running with the joists and water based textured..

It is recommended to hang horizontal to the joints, but due to joists changing direction it is sometimes necessary to run with the joints in certain situations to prevent having to butt non-tapered edges to the tapered edge of the drywall. So it is acceptable. I wouldn't tear down what' already up at this point.....
