I would recommend you stick with MBR.

Stick with MBR.

Now I have a question.
The title of your post had no association with the content of your post.

Was this an oversight?

As you have a EFI-BIOS, you can use GPT or MBR.

If you boot drives > 2TB then consider GPT.
I have a high end ASUS motherboard with UEFI BIOS and still use MBR. My rationale is to avoid possible compatability problems at this stage of UEFI rollout and I don't want large OS drives.
