Hi Deb

You made me realize an interesting thing and that is that I also have no 
idea on the correlation between dpi and pixels. However I can tell you 
that you basically need more pixels for larger prints. a good 7-8 
megapixel camera will print impressively sharp 8x10's. you can print 
4x6"'s with pretty much any cheap 2+ megapixel camera. generally (now 
that i think of it) at resolutions better than 300dpi. if you print a 
8x10" with a  photo from a cheap 2 megapixel it will be very very 
pixelized (ie: sort of grainy). i bought my latest at iris photo, im 
sure they have some stuff in your range and can answer those questions 
easily. if you can find parking.

i found this which might help:
