Chork's Puzzle 42

Difficulty Rating: 4

To commemorate the 42nd puzzle, Chork has decided to pack 42,000,000 gems to be given away. He decided to pack the 42,000,000 gems as such: In bag #1, he places 1 gem. In bag #2, he places 2 more gems than he did in bag #1. In bag #3, he places 3 more gems than he did in bag #2. He continues this process until he can no longer place x more sweets in bag #x than in bag #(x-1). The remaining gems then go back to his treasure trove.

How many bags of gems did Chork manage to fill?
