    I should warn you that using a fixed width layout will cause horizontal scrolling for some of your users, no matter what you attempt to do. Many people still use 800x600 and some have even smaller amounts of available space. You should make your width "liquid" which basically means, having a non fixed width in percentages - which photoshop will be unable to do.

    I'd agree with AlexDawson though I'd go with a centered max-width layout so that it still looks like a website on a large wide screen monitor without having the font scale too much.

    I think it depends on who your target audience is going to be. I design my pages fr family and friends quite differently than one that's intended for "public" use.
