Running too rich, P0170 or P070?

I got my codes checked today because the check engine light came on.

ive been having tons of trouble with rough idle and horrible gas smells.
I wrote the code down but can't remember if it was 0170 or 070 or 0107. but underneath the reader it said "System is too rich"

So I have a list of things that I think could be the problem (in order of most likely):
1. Clogged cat. (getting a new exhaust this weekend)
2. Bad O2 sensors (due to clogged cat.?)
3. fuel filter
4. vacuum leak
5. bad spark plugs
6. bad fuel injectors
7. dirty throttle body
8. TPS or MAP sensor

looks like I have my hands full, need opinions!
