Tipping point: When are you buying more camera/lens than you need?

Trying to understand something. A most computer screens the public uses has a resolution of 72 dpi. No matter what photo you put up it will always show at 72 dpi. Unlike an actual print which is 300 dpi.

Question:

1. How can you fully assess a lens or camera for it's quality if you look at the images online whereby all of them are at 72 dpi?

2. If you don't ever print your images why should you pay for a better lens or camera? Do they actually have noticeably better images on a screen of 72 dpi?

Is there a tipping point in quality/cost whereby it's not worth spending the money of better/higher priced equipment if you're only going to look at your images on your computer?

Would love some feed back and education here. Thank you.
