It will be nicer lumber for sure. If you go the 2x route, you may want to sort through the pile and pick straight ones.

Rough lumber rom a lumber distributor is rarely straight and flat, but is dried much better than 2x lumber and therefore moves less while working and over time. But you can also get nicer woods like maple or cherry or walnut. It will also be considerably more expensve, so check the price.
