nothing will be invalid, but if you create a fresh partition table the
tool creating it usually talks to the controller to align the sectors
properly to the physical sectors of the hardware to give you the best
performance. that alignment will be gone which can make you miss some
disk access performance. beyond this, a partition table is indeed just
a partition table (and gparted will likely also adjust it once you
resize the partition)
