I'm using a shield from Texy to attach my TFT to my Pi.
This is soooo much easier then connecting up the cables individually, which requires me to always refer to the wiring diagram... and it always takes me two or three goes to get it right.
This just requires a quick snap onto the top of the GPIO pins. It also includes wiring to use 3 buttons on the GPIO pins not being used by the TFT.
Look here to find out where you can get one;
