Ryzen 5, 5600X And Msi B450?

I’m new here and this is my first pic build, picked up some parts to start my first build. 
Corsair tower
ryzen 5 5600x 
msi b450 tomahawk max
16gb ram
1tb- ssd
750w power supply
I didn’t go for a great video card because quite frankly they had nothing with the $300-400 price range that was worth it. So for now I picked up Msi 550, just to get the build running. 

I updated bios for the motherboard, basically went to msi website downloaded,extracted, renamed and transfers the update to a thumb drive and plugged it in and used the bios flash feature and it did its thing. After about 5-7 mins I started the build and finally powered up and I have no picture, no screen at all: I’m thinking the MB AND CPU are not compatible. Any ideas would be appreciated. I’ve been researching for days while checking over things and I’m pretty bummed. Thanks in advance.
