Here's an example for integers on a 64-bit machine:

>>> g = ((x*(2**64 - 1), hash(x*(2**64 - 1))) for x in xrange(1, 1000000))
>>> d = dict(g)

This takes ages to complete and only uses very little memory.
The input data has some 32MB if written down in decimal numbers
- not all that much data either.
