Well I guess First off how are death knights as Viable Ulduar, Toc 10/25 and TOGC 10/25 man tanks?
Next this is my first Death Knight ever made so I guess any lvl spec tips as well as tanking builds would be greatly appreciated.

Death Knights are definitely on the squishy side for heroics and beginner raids (like Naxx), where the lack of a block mechanism really hurts.
For Ulduar and ToC/ToGC, they are just as viable and flexible as any other class. The only exception is fights where you really need a block tank, like the adds on Anub heroic.
As for leveling, I'd suggest Blood. Spec into Vendetta (which lets you mow down fields of mobs without stopping) and Rune Tap/Improved Rune Tap (20% heal every 30 seconds? hawt) and you will be a killing machine.
For tanking specs, well there are numerous guides on this site.
There are a ton of threads here covering everything you are asking. Read through Satorri's guides (http://www.tankspot.com/forums/search.php?searchid=1259171) for all your answers.
