"than" is correct; "giving up" in this context would mean "not even trying to allocate the memory and just preemptively raising OverflowError, like non-integer numeric types with limited ranges". Rather than giving up that way, it chooses to try to allocate the huge integer and raises a MemoryError only if that fails.
