Responsive design and Media Queries

I'm creating my first site using Responsive design.  I want to make sure I cover the most popular device sizes.  Please look at the following list and let me know if I should use different numbers, or if I should be aware of anything.

I'm looking for expert advice and comments.

@media screen and (max-width:320px) {}
@media screen and (min-width:321px) and (max-width:639px) {}
@media screen and (min-width:640px) and (max-width:959px) {}
@media screen and (min-width:960px) and (max-width:1279px) {}
@media screen and (min-width:1280px) and (max-width:1599px) {}
@media screen and (min-width:1600px) {}
@media screen and (min-width:1920px) {}
@media print {}

PS.. Do I need to place anything in the head so My CSS knows what the media screen width is?

what you have is fine. you dont need anything in the head.

personally, i try to make my media queries device agnostic, and base them more on what my layout requires. that way you're not tied to any particular devices. but it's not that big a deal.

Hi,
Your Media Query looks fine.

We generally create our responsive design in following way (Simple method)

In the same sequence.
Any Common Style should be placed before this query.

Advantage of this:
parameters which are changed for particular style should be placed in between.

@media screen and (max-width:980px)

@media screen and (max-width:700px)

@media screen and (max-width:480px)

Sample would be

@media screen and (max-width:700px)
{
    #content
    {
        width: auto;
        float: none;
    }
    #sidebar
    {
        width: auto;
        float: none;
    }
}
