I want to play 8 tables, but I am not sure which set up I should do. I have an inspirion 9300 with screen res of 1900 x 1200. I can only fit 4 on here so I am going ot have to expand. Is it possible to buy another monitor (huge one) where you can fit 8???

No, the res needed for 8 on one screen with no overlap would be huge. You could fit 9 on a 2000x1500 screen but it'd have quite a bit of overlap.

Why not just by a 1600x1200 and plug it into your laptop and use both screens? That's what nearly every other 8 tabler does.

I multi-table, playing up to 12 tables simultaneously across three monitors. I basically do 4 per monitor, at whatever the highest resolution is for each. I would think that this would be your best bet, rather than trying to fit all on 1 monitor. A couple of smaller screens would be more cost effective and ultimately more versitile for everyday computer use.

Just my two cents.
