According to the documentation, the User Points Rules integration used to have a number of conditions, but I don't see any of them in the beta release for Drupal 7.
The attached patch includes some functions to implement a condition that will check how many points a user has. It can be limited to a particular category, and compared to a threshold to assess equal, less than, less than or equal to, greater than, or greater than or equal to.
There's plenty of room for improvement on this, I'm sure, but I thought my contribution might help.
