Any point to >300dpi printing?

Apologies for the newbie question, printing is a bit of a mystery to me...

If pro quality prints usually use 300dpi is there any point in using a higher resolution than this? Is it always best to just use the highest resolution you have when printing as a rule of thumb? Or does it get to a point where you get no discernible quality in the print after a certain resolution and start to sacrifice on other counts (e.g. using more ink?)

The max image size I get from my canon is 5616 x 3744 which means I could print out on A4 at around 450+dpi

Or is it better to set the resolution to 300dp prior to printing?

NB I am printing at home using a canon pro9500, directly from CS5

many thanks
