I don't have anything against cordless, and it's not a question of cost, it's that I really don't think I will get other use from it.
I already have a corded drill.

I think if you try the cheapo bit pictured above with your drill, you'll see that you can't overdo it, well, you can but not easy. The bit is made to drive the screw in, enough for the proper dimple, but not enough to rip the paper. Then the drywall holds the outer portion of the bit to keep it from ripping and damaging the paper, it won't let you go too far.

Try it, you'll get it.
