How to backup and restore by STSADM for large site collection MOSS 2007?

Hi I have one site collection on MOSS 2007 of size 600 GB and want to restore on the same farm with new URL.
Is there any size limitation while using STSADM command for site collection backup and restore?
Or can we use Database backup and restoration on the same farm?

If I were you, I would backup / restore the content database(s) into the new farm - just make sure that the new farm has the features / solutions that site collection in question require and it should go fine.

OR you could take this opportunity to split the site into multiple site collections with each having their own content DB so that it might be a little easier to manage.....
