I just bought this phone this morning and will root it but should I take an OTA first?

I guess my question is, will I still be able to unlock the bootloader and root the phone if I do take the ota?

Edit...I went ahead and took the ota, unlocked the bootloader, rooted and flashed the Viper Kitkat Rom. All is good now.
