I'm not an english speaker and I have quite a bit of difficulty pronouncing numbers in english. I don't really know how to pronounce those words correctly. I never actually read numbers in english, but if I have to I would pronounce them this way.

16:9 - Sixteen nine
1920x1080 - nineteen ex ten eighty
1280x720 - twelve eighty ex seven twenty
780Ti - seven eighty ti-ai
2500k - twenty five hundreds ke

16:9 and 1920x1080 (or 1920*1080) need the preposition "by". You should say sixteen by nine, and nineteen twenty by ten eighty.

Not native either, but both the : and x in this case should be pronounced "by". So, sixteen by nine, nineteen twenty by ten eighty, and so on

You say "by" not "ex". Nineteen-twenty by ten-eighty, for example. For ratios you don't have to say anything for the colon. Sixteen Nine is fine.
