Default Counter sink

I need to drill some no. 8 screws 2 inches long into 3/4 plywood. I know I have asked things similar to this before, but what size do I need (drill bit).

Also, you can get drill bits with the countersink already on them. This is what I would like to get. Any thoughts?

I got a set or 2 similar to these. They can be had with a straight bit, or tapered.
The last set I got was the Peachtree tapered set in a plastic case. I had been checking them out at the woodworking shows, and they had the best quality and smoothest grind on the bits.

Never, under any circumstances, combine a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.
