The raw images from your camera are not really saved at 314 dpi. They are saved as ####x#### pixels. The only value that DPI (really PPI - pixels per inch) is to give you an indicator of how big the image will be at that particular setting. It doesn't matter whether it is set to 240, 314, 72, or whatever. The image is always the same size. But you can change that setting by clicking on the blue text line near the bottom of the ACR screen. That is where you set up your basic Camera Raw settings.
There is no "native" resolution. The pixel count is what matters. The DPI setting just tells the software how to print it and is, otherwise, and arbitrary number.
I'm not sure that you can set this number in Camera Raw when hosted by Photoshop Elements. The interface is slightly different and I only see 8/16-bit depth as an option. 240 dpi might be the default (and only) option in Elements.
However,you can change it at any time in Photoshop by going to Image>resize>Image Size and unchecking the "resample image" box and typing in a new number.

Right, as lomg as you leave the Resample box UNCHECKED, you can change the ppi resolution to whatever you want. The oxels in the image will remain untouched.
