too many bam files

Dear GATK Community,
What is the limit to the number of bam files that can be added using the -I command in the UnifiedGenotyper? I have ~800 exomes that I would like to genotype simultaneously. Each bam is < 10 Mb. Combining all of them into one singe bam file is time consuming. How many bam files do you recommend, and how many samples/bam or Mb/bam?
