Are quidditch points added to the house cup points? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs).

Possibly. It is confirmed that a House gets points toward the House Cup for Quidditch victories, although I don't think it's specified if it's a set amount or if it varies depending on the game's scores. Also, if it is related to score, it's unknown if they get the full point value from the games applied or just a partial amount.
Some relevant passages from the books:
"Harry gasped - they would lose the lead, the lead he'd won in the last Quidditch match."
PS, ch.15, p.244-245, when McGonagall tells them she's docking them 50 points, but before she says 50 points each for the three.[src]
"Gryffindor House, meanwhile, largely thanks to their spectacular performance in the Quidditch Cup, had won the House championship for the third year running."
PoA, ch.22, p.430, at the End of Year feast.[src]
