Nvme to PCIe card
 
I have crosshair hero VII, using 2 x nvme drives, however it appears that one of the 2 m.2 slots shares its lanes with the x16 card which means my meagre rx470 is running at x8 instead of x16.

Does anyone have recommendations for a cheap adaptor card for the nvme that will fit into one of the other pcie slots?

TIA

Noting you may have to move the GPU as it depends upon how the board is wired.

I'd check if your motherboard even has a location where it can connect a PCIe add-on card without doing the same thing to your graphics card.

Looking at Ronan's info I have 20 lanes coming from the CPU.
It would seem that using m.2_2 takes 4 lanes from the second gfx slot which in turn drops pcie 1 down to 8 lanes even when using 1 gfx card.
Whilst both of the x4 pcie slots and the bottom x16 wired as x4 slot are fed from the chipset.

The difference between x16 and x8 is maybe 1FPS, I wouldn't worry about it, Gamers Nexus did a whole article about it, The results are the same across the board, Below is Metro Last Light.
