The could be a fast way to do it I think, your other option would be to draw the points using the points in DirectX, mind that you can make them bigger or smaller as covered in the SDK (See Render States) and that helps.

If you want to do the points you might wanna look into point sprites for a faster solution. It should still be pretty fast if its static must of the time.
