Moving Text In vi(1) To Another File

What is the best way to copy large sections of text in a file and copy 
it to another file, possibly a new file or not. Is vi even the best 
utility to do that?

I have the source file open; I yank the text region then, do I open a 
new file/buffer first or is there a command to 'redirect' the data to?
