Depends a lot on your filesystem. FAT32 doesn't like files greater than
4GB, no matter what program makes them. NTFS does not have this limitation.
I have seen 50Gb files processed on UNIX machines without error. Other
people undoubtedly have seen more (much more). Once you hit file sizes
like that, you need to start looking a lot at your OS limitations as
opposed to GnuPG limitations.
