photoshop 'resolution' setting

My bro does graphic design for our home business. He primarily uses photoshop. He is good at this, but studied painting, not design. Whenever he creates a new file, he insists on using a resolution of 600-700 pixels/inch. This creates files up to 150 mb big. Obviously, it is difficult to print these or even use my computer while it is printing or even open (Dual AMD AthlonXP 1.54 ghz, 512 mb DDR). I try to tell him this setting is unrealistic but i need proof that increasing the value to this degree does not improve image quality. I mean, these files are as big as videos. So, who is right? Also, what does this setting actually affect (other than file size). What is a good value for 8.5/11 prints mostly at 720 dpi? Thanks.
