I saved up money over time and upgraded my PC piece by piece, i got the ASUS X370 motherboard during christmas (in the box until today) , and recently got CORSAIR RGB ram 16gb (2x 8GB) and the Ryzen 2700x. i kept my EVGA 750 watt power supply and EVGA 1050ti. after putting it together the unit would pass the CPU and RAM test but stick at the white VGA LED on board. i have tried resetting CMOS and trying to boot with my older GPU and without a GPU at all and going straight to the MOBO. the 1050ti works fine on another pc i have without issue. i would love some help on how to get my pc up and running with all the new hardware i got!

first thing first, 2700X just out not long ago and you had the mobo still in the box from christmas, meaning the BIOS doesn't support the 2700X
you need to update BIOS to use the 2700X
