how to create a LCD gameboy effect

so, i want to create an effect similar to old gameboy screens and i've got as far as using mosaic and threshold filters to create the pixels only to truly replicate the screen i need a grid to break up the squares that mosaic creates.
using render/grid takes forever to match up fiddling it this way and that. is there any quicker way to achieve this effect? its driving me mad.
in photoshop for example you set pixel width of these things so they line up exactly.

Create the proper grid. Then render it as an alpha-channel still, reimport into AE and use it any way you want.
