So, I have been bored recently, as far as gaming, and decided to play WoW again. Mainly because I bought Lich King and quit soon after. I decided I want to at least go through the "new" areas. I also decided to play a DK since I haven't really. I plan on mostly just questing with some instances in between. Does anyone have any good DPS builds?

No. You can level with any spec, but best option is unholy. Basically: Blood -> Tank, Frost -> DPS (better raw damage, less utility, next patch will nerf it), Unholy -> DPS/PvP (slightly less raw damage, a lot more utility, simpler rotation).
Try to avoid dual-weilding while leveling (without a decent amount of hit you'll be missing a lot), use a two hander.
true, dual wielding does include a lot ot non special attack misses. Blood, even though it's tank spec, does pretty good dps and has the best survivability (lots of self healing going on). I might consider that if i were you. Given you use a 2 hander for that too.
Blood doesn't have the damage of a DPS spec, not by miles. When you see a tank spec doing a lot of damage it is because of Vengeance, which requires big hits (hint: boss hits) to be effective. On regular mobs your damage will be low. Granted you won't take any damage ... so if you like a turtle approach to leveling, go blood, but don't expect lighting fast progress.
You are correct, up to WotlK starting zones DKs are insanely powerful. They were made that way to help them catch up with the rest of the crowd when WotlK started. When you hit Borean/Howling your effectiveness takes a nose dive.
If you want a spec for classes, go here. It's where I go when I need a spec. Like, for example, I co-healed a pug group in ICC 10man and had to switch from balance to resto so I had to get a resto spec.
