Web Design Sizes?

This is one of my major issues these days. I'm using 15" Retina Macbook Pro. When I'm designing websites in Photoshop I normally use following settings,* __width__ = 2560, to make it easy to view on large screens; however I keep all text within the 12 column content grid (2000px)* __res__ > 300. The problem is when I view the site in my web browser on a 1080p screen it looks huge. In Photoshop on my Macbook Pro however it looks normal. I don't understand the theory behind this. What are the best practices for getting your site to scale to different resolutions? What's really happening to the site when you do responsive web design? What font size(s) should I use in Photoshop so they scale properly?
