A GET request is only limited by a browser's limit on the length of the URL string.
In IE it is 2,048 characters, minus the number of characters in the actual path. Other browsers do not have a clearly defined limit on the length of the URL string. This article might be of interest to you.

RFC 2616, "Hypertext Transfer Protocol -- HTTP/1.1," does not specify any requirement for URL length, so browsers are free to stipulate what they deem fit.

Note that the limits are on the length of the URL, not the content that can be returned in the response.
