Why are you even trying to take the FFT of such a long series?

The resulting spectrum will be so noisy, you won't be able to interpret it.

Split the signal into 10 or more blocks, take the FFT of each, then average the results and take the abs of the first half. This will give a nice smooth spectrum.
