"I have what looks like custom built Windows 95 or 98 machine"

Pretty vague description. They're probably not much good for anything other than Win9x, DOS, or a very lightweight version of Linux. Please list the complete system specs - motherboard, CPU, RAM, graphics, power supply, hard drive, etc. - so we can make a better determination.

They lose value very quickly but a 2 or 3 year old computer might fetch something approaching a third of its original value. People usually want the latest and greatest. If they are stuck for funds then they would hope to pick up something old for free (or next to nothing) that is being thrown out.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Problem is that your machine is in the flatline of the "bathtub curve of value". New computers are worth something and very old (386 and prior; >25 years old) computers are worth something (generally to collectors), but those in between usually aren't worth much.
