72 dpi is the standard for web images because the majority of monitors cannot display a higher resolution. Say you have an image at 11" x 8" at 300 dpi on your screen. Save it as 1024 x whatever at 72 dpi. Then display it to fill the screen. It should look virtually the same as the original image.
You only need the big (original) version for printing youself or for publication.
