Is it running too slow because you have too many lines in the display?
If the number of scan lines is not exactly 3 lines of VSYNC, 37 lines
of VBLANK, 192 lines of picture and 30 lines of overscan, or some other
combination adding up to 262 lines, your clock routine will be off.

The clock routine you posted sure looks like it'd count by 60's exactly.
