i'm afraid that you need to buy cables for ramps1.4+maga 2560 because some of GT2560 cable do not fit to ramps 1.4.you also need a lcd adapter.
As for firmware,just burn the firmware for ramps 1.4

Hi Eric,

thank you, by watching picture it seems only power cable and fan cable is different. isn't it? Are Termistors compatibile?
