Hmm, from my experience 73C is not bad. My 6870 goes up to 85C using benchies like Heaven and Furmark so don't worry about 73C in game.

90+ Celsius is high in my opinion but some cards have been known to run standard at temps higher than that. A safe bet would be anything mid 80 and under @ full load.

Run Furmark or a bench similar to find your cards max temps. Games don't normally reach max temps anyway so don't worry to much.

Well, use a custom fan profile, many apps do provide that, and really does help knocking off a few degrees off.
I use msi afterburner.
