The resolution is not the only thing that matters if you want to print out big.

If you want a very good result for A3 (60 x 42 cm approximately), you should have a canvas corresponding to those dimensions and have it at 300 ppi. 150 ppi may give a satisfying result too, but I wouldn't go below 150 ppi unless I have to.

Of course the performance of your printer also counts.
