revised What are the differences between MBR vs GPT vs any other partition scheme?
Reverting edit; nobody cares aobut DOS anymore, and it just complicates theings to mention it. This answer is not a study in computing history; if the reader wishes to learn more about the prehistory of Windows, they are perfectly able to from the Wikipedia link.

comment Intel BOXDH77KC won't boot Linux GPT disk
Thanks. I don't plan on using more than two partitions (boot and swap) on this drive, so MBR will serve fine. Thanks! (BTW, that last link is really well-written. and informative.)

comment Intel BOXDH77KC won't boot Linux GPT disk
So I'd need an extra partition. I'll keep that in mind if I reinstall. Is there any benefit to using a GPT disk over MBR or am I being silly?

I mostly wanted to use GPT because it's "better", i.e., no particular reason. All my Intel Macs are GPT, so why not have everything use that?
