ASP.Net - Can a stringbuilder hold a large amount of data such as an XML file worth?

I have a loop where I am creating an XML string and elements.  It has many records though about 60000 or so at least.  How big can I keep appending a string builder to?

The default capacity for this implementation is 16, and the default maximum capacity is Int32..::.MaxValue.                

Int32.maxValue would be approximately 2 billion characters.

So if your XML file is coming in under a couple gigabytes ... you should be OK.
