I need to get some prints done at a fairly large size. The final output will be maximum 3 feet by 2 feet. I've never done prints this size but everything I've read has said that the 5D MkII can produce that size just fine. What I'm unsure of is how to set my file up in Photoshop. The largest prints I've done in the past is 18x12 which is more or less the camera's largest output at 300dpi (which is plenty sharp). For larger prints (like the ones I want to do) what resolution should I be using? 72? 150?

I am currently (still) using a CRT monitor and would like to move to an LCD panel. My primary usage is for photography and web browsing. I have spent the last three weeks or so researching monitors and have found out that (1) I will need to buy an IPS panel, (2) having looked at monitor sizes in the store I really would prefer a 27 or 30 inch monitor and (2) I have resigned myself to the fact that I should expect to pay at least $1,000 for a good monitor, possibly closer to $2,000. What monitor would you recommend? Is it really worth upgrading to a really high-end monitor ($2,000+)? More questions and details inside. [more inside]
