Things to consider before unrEVOked??
So I am on the fence... Should I dive in to rooting? unrEVOked looks appealing..
but what should I do/consider before I start the process??
What about backing up the stock sprint rom? best way to go about that?

Is that the guide you would recommend?
My build number is .5 so i guess that is a good thing..
I am going to be honest, I am till slightly confused about this rooting...
After I use the above guide, do I still need to select a custom rom to load?
and Nadroid.... after I root do i use nadroid to back up or do i do it before?

you can flash a custom rom if you want to,(I Would)
As for the nadroid you can't make it till you do that process.Nadroid will backup your phone how it is now(without the call history/text).Its mainly used when you want to backup and try anew rom or theme.
*tip-once you complete the process,save the first nadroid backup file to your pc for safe keeping.(that way you can always return to how your phone is now,

The guide that Beezy pointed to, is the one I used. It worked perfectly with no issues at all.
About 2 weeks later, I braved flashing one of Beezy's ROMs (IcedHoneybun v2). That made the phone much more responsive and peppy. In fact its what I'm using now. And would highly recommend it.

The rooting process if fairly simple. Follow the instructions and select your recovery. Amon's newest is probably the default most people use. Once you gain root do a Nandroid since it's in a freshly rooted state. Then go on to flash ROMs of your choosing.
