Hi nikavak;

The simple answer to your question is Yes. Although I do not know why one would want to do that when you think of network throughput the more columns and rows will impact the network traffic.

Columns per nonwide table =  1,024
Columns per wide table      = 30,000

This info can be found at
Maximum Capacity Specifications for SQL Server
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms143432.aspx

What is the difference between nonwide and wide tables can be found on the following two links.
