Here are some guidlines

100 Million Items per Search Index (1 Billion with FAST), Tens of Millions of Documents / Items in a single list, View/Query 5000 items at a time, 150,000 Site Collections per WebApp, 50,000 Site Collections per Content DB..

The issue is not how many sites per site collection but how many sites can you have and keep the DB Size within range of your BU, Restore and Maintenance SLAs...

For 2007

1 million Site Collections in a Farm

150,000 Site Collections per WebApp

50,000 Site Collections per content DB

The maximum recommended number of sites and subsites is 250,000 sites.

You can create a very large total number of Web sites by nesting subsites. For example, in a shallow hierarchy with 100 sites, each with 1,000 subsites, you would have a total of 100,000 Web sites. Or a deep hierarchy with 100 sites, each with 10 subsite levels would also contain a total of 100,000 Web sites.

Note: Deleting or creating a site or subsite can significantly affect a site’s availability. Access to the site and subsites will be limited while the site is being deleted. Attempting to create many subsites at the same time may also fail.
